AMG Fix It to Pick Up Donations for The Giving Plate this Thursday Around Bend
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 in three separate neighborhoods in Bend on Thursday, April 16th. The AMG Fix It van will be parked in the following communities for residents to drop off food behind the van while continuing to social distance:
- Mirada: 9-11 AM (By the community pool on NE Nolan St)
- Skyliner Summit: 12-2 PM (At the park on NW Sandalwood Loop/NW Flagline Dr)
- Renaissance Ridge: 3-5 PM (By the community pool/pavilion on Aspen Ridge Dr)
“The Giving Plate has recently experienced a 55% increase in the number of individuals accessing help and a 79% increase in children we are helping through our Kid’s Korner program,” said Executive Director of the Giving Plate, 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:https://www.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 one of the spots listed above, please consider going to https://www.thegivingplate.org/donate and supporting them with a financial donation.
