COOS BAY, Ore. — A local store is helping the Oregon Coast Community Action by raising money for the Share Bear Snack Pack program.
Farrs True Value Hardware is raffling off a basket to raise money for the program, which supplies 750 at-risk children with a weekly Snack Pack.
The basket includes a birdhouse, gloves, patio deck watering kit, loppers, hedge trimmer, grass shears and watering can.
Farrs True Value Hardware in Coquille is offering a $50 gift certificate as first prize.
“We are always inspired when local businesses step up with this kind of creative idea to support one of our programs,” said Deborah Ross, Development Director for ORCCA “The Snack Pack program supplies kids and their families with supplemental nutrition that studies show can make a big difference in how well kids perform in school.”
Tickets for the raffle are $1 each. For every $10 purchase of raffle tickets Farrs will be match dollar-for-dollar.
Both of these prizes will be given away on May 10.
