Over 5,000 would have gone hungry in 2018 without assistance from the Clatsop Emergency Food Bank.
Of those 5000 people, approximately 1700 were children.
The Clatsop Emergency Food Bank fed 500 of the most vulnerable members of our community.
Let's Stamp Out Hunger is the largest fundraiser for the Clatsop Emergency Food Bank.
The Clatsop Emergency Food Bank accepts food and money donations at their location in the First Presbyterian Church located at 1103 Grand Ave. Astoria, Oregon, 97103. The food bank accepts donations Monday through Friday from 3pm to 4pm. Money goes a lot farther than non-perishable food items. By donating one dollar, the food bank can purchase five cans of food as opposed to one can of food from that same dollar if purchased by a consumer.
This event was founded in 2015 by Bobbi Brice and Cindy Miller and the board was established in 2018. The following board members have put in several hours of their personal time to organize this fundraising event for paper crafters. Those who are interested in offering their time to volunteer for this very worthy event, please use the contact us link at the bottom of this page.
We are adding demonstrators all the time, so check back to see if your favorite teacher is listed.
Susan is heavily involved in our community. She volunteers for several committees and boards in addition to being a member of the Let’s Stamp Out Hunger planning board. A retired teacher, Susan purchased a raffle prize to learn card making from a local crafter three years ago, and she was quickly hooked.
Robert Leamy is a recent transplant to our area from Vancouver, Washington. He and his wife Cindi have consolidated their Impressing Ideas stores from Vancouver, Washington, to Surfside, Washington. Robert is also a musician and has been known to serenade participants at the LSOH events.
An extremely talented paper crafter, Judy Ray has been a member of our demonstrator team for many years. She has a knack for looking at a project and being able to figure out how to make it. She lives on the Long Beach peninsula but spends many of her creating hours with us here in Astoria.
During the event, raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 or 3 for $10. Each ticket gives you a chance to win one of the exciting prizes donated by our generous sponsors. The more tickets you purchase, the higher your chances of winning!
The Silent Auction is a great way to help contribute to this worthy cause while gaining new paper crafting tools and supplies.
We could not hold this event if it wasn’t for the generous support from our local sponsors. We would like to thank those who have helped make this event great!
