MEDFORD, Ore. -- ACCESS said around the holidays they get loads of different food donations for people in need. Around January and February, ACCESS said, that's when they need donations the most.
The holiday season is a time for gathering with family and friends and remembering what we are truly thankful for that's when the ACCESS Warehouse is fully stocked with donations.
"The holidays make us feel generous and want to give back especially if we're in a place where we have more we want to give away and support out community and that's a wonderful thing. It makes a real difference to those who are hungry or cold or need shelter, it makes a real difference," said ACCESS’s Executive Officer, Pamela Norr.
ACCESS said after the ball drops on New Year’s Day, people don't donate as much. Norr said there is a significant spike in hunger and people need ways to keep warm. That's when they need food and blanket donations the most.
"While we're so thankful for people giving right now, we hope they continue it into the New Year," Norr added.
