MEDFORD, Ore. — Kaleidoscope Pizzeria & Pub announced this week that it will match donations to ACCESS for its fire relief efforts up to $25,000.

ACCESS says that the donations will go toward providing food, housing, energy assistance, and other basic needs to families in Jackson County who were impacted by the Almeda and South Obenchain fires.

“Our recent Feed the Hungry Fire Victims campaign on November 10th raised $16,000 to provide 64,000 meals to our community but we wanted to do more. We recognize that it will take months, maybe years, for those impacted by the fires to recover and they need our help,” said Jake Allmaras, co-owner of Kaleidoscope.

As Jackson County's regional food bank and community action agency, ACCESS says that it serves more than 57,000 people every year — about one in every four residents of the county. They also distribute more than 5.3 million pounds of food to the 25 food pantries in Jackson County.

Since the September fires, ACCESS has also pivoted to providing resources to those displaced or otherwise impacted.

"Over the years, Kaleidoscope Pizza’s support of ACCESS has equated to providing almost a half of a million meals for those struggling with hunger. Their support has been instrumental in our ability to feed our hungry friends and neighbors here in Jackson County. We were overwhelmed with gratitude when they told us they wanted to make a matching donation of this magnitude on top of what they already do," says Kellie Battaglia, Development Director for ACCESS.

Funds raised will help Jackson County residents recover from the recent devasting fires and allow ACCESS to help those in need moving forward. To donate, go to www.accesshelps.org/donate or call 541-779-6691. You can also give by texting KScope Pizza Match to 44-321.
