Outside we will have teams at Brother’s Grocery, Dollar General, and Gary’s until 1:00 PM to ask shoppers to consider donating to SELCC. All goods donated will be delivered to SELCC by our volunteers. Accepted donations include non-perishable food items, toiletries, clothing and school supplies. These are distributed to the clients of SE Linn through their food pantry and other programs. If you’d like to volunteer please sign-up with Elise Rodenberg.
