Three weeks away from the food, family and football day of the year. We know all you foodies out there are already planning the meal, but what to do before the meal is served? How about donate your time and energy to one of the city’s food banks or shelters. Every year the Portland Rescue Mission, as well as a number of other programs, serve hundreds of meals to those less fortunate. Submit your application now to volunteer at your favorite location, and don’t forget to take the kids, what a great way to show it what “Paying it Forward” feels like.
