Donate Food, Ski and Snowboard for Free
Medford, March 12, 2018: Mt. Ashland’s annual Ski & Snowboard Against Hunger is a day when Mt. Ashland gives back to the community. On Sunday, Apr. 8 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., lift tickets are free with donations of five non-perishable food items. All food will be donated to ACCESS and distributed to the hungry throughout Jackson County.
“It’s our annual day of saying “Thank you” to our community for all of the support we receive from folks,” says Mt. Ashland Development Director Michael Stringer.
ACCESS distributes food donations to 24 emergency pantries in Jackson County that provide approximately 3,000 food boxes a month, which equals about five days’ worth of food per box.
ACCESS provides food, housing, warmth and other essential services to Jackson County's low income children, families, seniors and people with disabilities.
As the Community Action Agency of Jackson County, Oregon, ACCESS has been helping Jackson County residents break the cycle of poverty since 1976. With a focus on education, ACCESS helps people through economic crisis by guiding them through changes in habits to help them become self-sustaining. ACCESS currently serves local residents through 15 programs designed to address problems from one-time emergencies to longer-term issues.
