Asante Three Rivers Medical Center CEO Win Howard presents a donation to the Josephine County Food Bank—providing enough funds for 60,000 meals to those in need.
Win Howard, CEO of Asante Three Rivers Medical Center, presented the Josephine County Food Bank with a donation of $20,000 on Dec. 15, 2022—providing enough funds for 60,000 meals to those in need.
“Our organization is incredibly grateful,” said Josephine Sze, director of the food bank.” We now feed more people than ever. Their support will ensure that we can continue fighting hunger in Josephine County, and getting our community the food it needs.”
As food costs continue to rise without an increase in wages, food insecurity is affecting more people than ever.
Making the choice between food and other necessities is something no person should experience. One in five people in Josephine county need assistance every month from the food bank. Every donation helps those in need.
Three Rivers Medical Center and Josephine County Food Bank are seeking additional donations to help the community. Nonperishable food and garden produce can be dropped off at 3658 Upper River Road in Grants Pass, Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. or at one of 10 collection bins around town. Monetary donations can be mailed to Josephine County Food Bank, P.O. Box 250, Grants Pass, OR 97528.
