Help Us End Childhood Hunger!

TSCU foundation food and fund drive image

The TwinStar Community Foundation is once again partnering with Homeless Backpacks organizations in our service areas to help at-risk kids.  Now through October 12th, we will be seeking donations and food items to provide nutritious food for teens that provides the help they need to focus on school, go on to graduate and become contributing citizens.

Homeless Backpacks provide healthy food for the weekend to homeless youth in Pierce, Thurston, Mason, Lewis, Grays Harbor, Clark and Clackamas, OR counties.

The TwinStar Community Foundation will match all personal contributions dollar for dollar. 

Please stop by any TwinStar branch to donate money or food today.  You will receive a tax deductibility form with your monetary donation.  TwinStar employees will also be gathering food items to complement the fundraising efforts; we’re looking to pile the food donations high at StarCon, our annual employee communication event on October 14th!

The best items for the food barrels are as follows (keep items small so they fit in the backpack):

  • Tuna (canned)
  • Ravioli (canned)
  • Chili (canned)
  • Milk box (unrefrigerated)
  • Juice boxes
  • Granola Bars
  • Top Ramen
  • Individually packaged crackers and cookies
  • Instant oatmeal packets
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Zip lock bags
  • Fruit cups and applesauce cups
