Community Canned Food Drive

52nd Annual Hermiston Christmas Express Program
Plans have already started for the 52nd annual Hermiston Christmas Express Program. Each year, we provide enough food for 500 identified families/individuals in our area who could use assistance. With school not in session, we have had to rethink our canned food drive(s) for the program. In past years, students (often those most in need) have made our program a success by donating thousands and thousands of canned goods. This year, we are calling upon the entire Hermiston community to assist.
From November 30th through December 11th (less December 6th), we will have staff at the Hermiston Community Center to assist in collecting canned goods. We ask that no glass containers of any kind be donated as they create a hazard with the packaging of the food boxes we provide.
We will be there from 9 AM to 5 PM each day. Hermiston has always been a “can do” community, so please assist if you can.
