Oregon Republican League Rescues Democrats Food Drive

Oregon Republican League Rescues Democrats Food Drive: Democrat event raises 50% of One Ton Goal, Republicans to Contribute
County Democrats still collecting food for UCAN
January 23, 2006

ROSEBURG: The Douglas County Democrats are close to reaching their goal of collecting 1 ton of food for Umpqua Community Action Network, and they're asking residents to keep it coming.More than 1,000 pounds of food was donating throughout the December drive. Community members are continuing to donate items for UCAN's food bank. Nonperishable food items can be dropped off from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday at the headquarters office, 232 S.E. Jackson St.Information: 672-8803.


1) I just got an email, where Mr. Larson asked the Republicans to donate food to the Democrats food drive. Very interesting, given the Republicans own great food drive success during December, and certainly for a good cause. - Marilyn J.

2) Hunger is not a partisan issue. According to the Oregon Food Bank, 91% of UCAN customers are below the poverty line and 40% are children. At least 14 food pantries and 11 community kitchens are served by UCAN.Please remember that hunger is not something that just happens in Winter. Families, in our communities, are in need all year around. So by all means, please contribute to the Republican's efforts, and the Democrat's efforts... and to each endeavor you are best able. Many of us already have, and we're putting together another set of boxes to deliver unto the Democratic event.

To find out more, about how you can help, please visit the Umpqua Community Action Network website at:

Highest regards !

Oregon Republican League Food Drive

Democrats seek food gifts through New Year
December 28, 2005

The Douglas County Democrats are asking the community to help them collect one ton of food to donate to Umpqua Community Action Network. Members of the group report that nearly half a ton of food has been collected so far. The group will continue taking donations of nonperishable food items at the Democratic Headquarters office through Sunday.The office, at 232 S.E. Jackson St. in Roseburg, is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays, except for Wednesdays when it is open until 6 p.m. Information: 672-8803.


1) Outstanding !The Oregon Republican League, centered here in Douglas County, collected a record 3,211 pounds of nonperishable food, and 230 new toys, in local efforts between November 1st and December 23rd. This represents a substantial increase over 2004.This is the kind of partisan warfare our communities can take great pride in.Very highest regards, in your most worthy endeavor.- Tony Larson, Azalea

2) Great job, Tony. Kudos to those D's too. How about a book drive next year? -Robert Johnson

3) Oh come on. How about a hunting derby? They have them in eastern Oregon. I heard Glendale has a club. I can't afford hunting licenses and tags anymore but people donate kills to the soup kitchens or church feeds. Fresh meat during the holidays would be great. Its something not a lot of families can afford all the time. I'd love fresh venison. State police have harvest guidelines so everything's safe. Maybe one of the smokehouses would donate their services for preparation and sausage. Just one i-deer.Drooling in Riddle
