The bank’s goal is to collect at least 3,500 pounds of food across the region. In Lane County it already collected 500 pounds.
“This is the first year we’ve done something this specific, and knowing that everything we raise for the area stays in the community,” said Mark Johnson, Home Federal Regional President.
If you’d like to donate, there are drop boxes at all the Home Federal locations.
Bank managers say they hope to continue the drive for years to come.
