Kidsgiving Food Drive

Hunger is a gnawing, empty feeling that makes the whole world seem cold. It's even worse when you're a child and can't understand why everyone else seems to have more than enough to eat…except you. For many years, the radio stations of Entercom Portland have committed themselves to helping kids in our own backyard during the holiday season, and this year, we celebrate 14 years of giving back through an annual charity campaign called Kidsgiving.

Make a generous donation of non-perishable food items in the specially-marked barrels at all Aaron's stores in the Portland metro area (locations listed below) now through November 21st. All the food collected will go to the Oregon Food Bank—dedicated to eliminating hunger and it's root causes, and to the Community Transitional School—dedicated entirely to the needs of kids whose families are homeless. In addition to the great feeling you'll get from helping feed hungry kids, Aaron's is offering a credit incentive. 5 items gets you $25 in credit at Aaron's, 10 items gets you $50 in credit, and 20 + items gets you $75 credit!
