The Ridgecrest Neighborhood Association would like to thank everyone who participated in our 2016 Holiday Food Drive for HopeLink during November and December.

Your efforts helped to make a difference for families in our community.

Our previous record for donations was 661 pounds, set back in 2011. This year we set a lofty goal of 700 pounds.

Through your generosity, we set a new record!

For 2016, we collected 811 pounds of food and $200 in cash donations.

This year’s collection site was the Ridgecrest Public House, 520 NE 165th. Located in the Ridgecrest Neighborhood, the Pub is open seven days a week from 4pm to midnight. It has become quite the community gathering spot for the neighborhood over the past year, so it was the logical choice for collecting donations.
