The largest food drive in Clark County will be held on Saturday.
Walk & Knock was first started in 1982 by Vancouver Lions Club members, and continues to grow every year.
Local residents can contribute to the 2010 effort by filling a paper grocery bag (one is included in today’s Post-Record) with non-perishable food items and leaving it on front doorsteps for volunteers to pick up between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Donations can also be dropped off through Dec. 11 at several local sites including Gunderson Les Schwab, 2375 S.E. Eight Ave., in Camas; Riverview Community Bank, 700 N.E. Fourth Ave., in Camas and 3307 Evergreen Way in Washougal; and at the Inter-Faith Treasure House, 91 “C” St., in Washougal.
The food collected throughout the county is distributed to 15 local food banks, including the Treasure House.
Since its inception, Walk & Knock has collected 5.69 million pounds of food valued at more than $7.4 million. Thousands of volunteers help put on the food drive each year.
