AMG Fix It Seeks Food Donations on Behalf of The Giving Plate Food Bank
Local handyman company, AMG Fix It, and partner Aperion Management Group, a Central Oregon Homeowners’ Association management company, has been coordinating with The Giving Plate to set up food donation spots on Thursday, April 16. The AMG Fix It van will be parked in Renaissance Ridge from 3-5pm (by the community pool/pavilion on Aspen Ridge Drive) for residents to drop off food behind the van while continuing to social distance.
“The Giving Plate has recently experienced a 55 percent increase in the number of individuals accessing help and a 79 percent increase in children we are helping through our Kid’s Korner program,” said Giving Plate Executive Director Ranae Staley. “We are also seeing less food donated, and the support from AMG Fix It and Aperion is priceless as we work to share food and share hope with our neighbors in need.”
Everything from produce, canned goods, kid’s foods, baked goods and toiletries can be donated. A more detailed list of food and other items that are needed and can be found at the following link: thegivingplate.org/donate.
“We understand that with the recent circumstances surrounding COVID-19, even more families are at risk for losing access to food security if donations don’t increase,” said AMG Fix It Manager Bryan Ricci. “No matter how small of a donation or act, you can make a difference, and that’s exactly why we want to lend our van to helping pick up donations.”
If you are unable to donate at the spot listed above, please consider going to thegivingplate.org/donate and supporting them with a financial donation.
