“We’ve done this for 31 years now and are so gratified by the support we receive from our guests, said Kirk Hanna, President of Mt. Hood Skibowl. “Over the years, Skibowl guests have donated over 120,000 thousand of pounds of food for emergency relief, making a significant difference in the lives of Portland area families and individuals. With all the good snow we are hoping to have a good collection this year since the need continues to grow.”
Since 1923, the Portland Police Bureau Sunshine Division has been providing food and clothing relief to Portland families and individuals in need. Whether due to the loss of a job, domestic crime, illness, or victims of fire or disaster, the Sunshine Division has built an 95+ year legacy of mobilizing quickly and efficiently to assist distressed Portlanders.
The Portland Police Sunshine Division and Skibowl have partnered since 1988 helping local people in need. In that time, Skibowl has collected more than 120,000 pounds of food, nearly 60 TONS, for local people in need.
