Thanks for your Generosity

Alzheimer

by Connie Medeiros & Liz Majkowski

Thank you to all of the OPC Members and those in the Community that generously contributed to our 3 day Food Drive for the Redwood Empire Food Bank in December.  We partnered with the Oakmont Rainbow Women (ORW) Club and were successful in collecting $2,060 and 284lbs of food (this does not include what the ORW Club collected) that will help feed the 30,000 families in our community that are currently supported by the Food Bank each week.  And a special thanks to Liz Majkowski, Cindi Clemence and Linda Canar for their organization skills to put this event together in a very short period of time!  

To add excitement to the Food Drive, we raffled off a Pickleball paddle which was won by Nancy Landes.

Thanks to everyone for your support of this very worthwhile cause.  Wishing all a happy, healthy 2021….pickle on!
