PPB Sunshine Division, Zupan's give 500 food boxes to families in need

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Police Bureau Sunshine Division and Zupan's Markets employees packed up more than 500 food boxes with complete Thanksgiving meals for families in need.

The ninth-annual Thanksgiving food box program was completely funded by customers and employees of Zupan's Markets this year.

Donations were collected in stores throughout October and November. Volunteers put the boxes together on Monday and they were distributed on Tuesday.

The boxes were given to qualifying families, some directly referred from the Portland Police Bureau.

Families picked the boxes up at the Sunshine Division's north Portland warehouse Tuesday morning, while Portland Police Bureau Youth Services Division officers and members of the Domestic Violence Emergency Response Team delivered a number of boxes to families they are currently working with or who may be experiencing crisis situations.

The Sunshine Division serves low-income families with children, seniors and veterans in the metro area.
