Inside the box was everything for a delicious Christmas meal: turkey or chicken, pumpkin pie, dinner rolls, margarine and fresh produce.

Albertsons Safeway, Fred Meyer, Shari’s Restaurant and Pies, and many other corporate sponsors donated the food.

Hundreds of volunteers helped pack and deliver the boxes, including Portland Police Officers, Air National Guard members and Portland Mayor Charlie Hales.
