Creator and the Local Community

Creator partners with other groups in the area to work to end hunger in our community. Providing food and donations for King's Cupboard, a satellite of the Oregon Food Bank, volunteering to help pack food at the OFB, working with Backpack Buddies to provide healthy weekend meals for students at Mt. Scott and Bilquist Elementary Schools are some of the ways that Creator ministers to the community.

Twice-annual blood drives with the American Red Cross and/or walking as a team in Light the Night for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society are other ways to work with the community.

Hunger Awareness

Working at the Oregon Food BankCreator's members work with the Oregon Food Bank and it's local satellite, King's Cupboard, to help distribute food to the hungry in our community.  Collecting food each week, working to help pack food at the Oregon Food Bank and distribute food at the King's Cupboard, people from Creator work to ease the burden of those people in our community who might otherwise go hungry.  

Backpack Buddies

backpackersThe Backpack Buddies program provides weekend food for children at Mt. Scott, Spring Mountain and Bilquist Elementary schools who are at risk of going hungry on the weekends. Creator helps raise money for this program with a yearly concert in addition to individual donations. Volunteer shoppers give of their time to shop for the meals. The Boy Scouts of Troop 611 and the students of Happy Valley Middle School pack up the lunches and volunteers deliver them on Wednesdays for distribution to the students.

There are many opportunities to give and volunteer with this worthwhile program.
