Kiniski’s Reef Tavern has a fundraiser planned to help the local food bank when the community needs it most.
On Saturday, November 16, starting at 6 p.m. the Reef will donate all proceeds from pizza sales to the food bank. “Come buy a pizza and support Henry and our local food bank,” said owner Nick Kiniski. DJ Jay will be taking requests all night and non-perishable food items will be accepted to fill up the food bank coffers.
As in past years this is a lean time for the food bank as it works to make the holidays special for the over 50 local families it serves. Organizers are hoping the community steps up with donations so that holiday treats like hams and turkeys can be added to the staples the food bank distributes weekly.
Donations can be made through accounts at either Banner Bank or Umpqua Bank. Contributions are tax deductible and tax receipts are available. There are also coin boxes for the food bank at TSB Shipping, Larry’s Liquor Locker and Kiniski’s Reef Tavern.
Donations of non-perishable food can also be left at the box inside the front door of the International Marketplace. There is a special need for proteins like salmon, tuna or beef stew.
For questions about what the food bank needs this time of year contact Henry Rosenthal at 945-1711.
