February 28  Interfaith Advocacy Day at the Capitol in Salem 8:30 – 4:30 pm

 

Saturday, February 9, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm Be Jeweled, the sixth annual fundraiser for Food Share of Lincoln County, is accepting donations of jewelry and jewelry components for the event, which will take place on Saturday, February 9, at the Newport Shilo Inn.

This jewelry extravaganza is seeking donations of all kinds. All jewelry is accepted, including beads and even broken pieces. Jewelry-making supplies are also much appreciated as the committee can make simple repairs on donated jewelry.  Be Jeweled by donating jewelry you no longer wear is a great way to feed hungry families.  Food Share and its partner food pantries distribute an estimated 65,000 pounds of food each month to over 1,200 families throughout Lincoln County to help stave off hunger.

You can drop off your jewelry donation at the Food Share office (535 NE 1st St, Newport), all branches of the Oregon Coast Bank, as well as at the Newport Senior Center. A tax receipt will be available at each location.  For more information, or to arrange a jewelry pick up, please contact Nancy Smith at 541-265-8578.
