On Friday, Sherm’s Food 4 Less and Thunderbird dropped off 23,000 pounds of food and toiletries to ACCESS in Medford. The donations will be a big help for the 24 food pantries the organization serves.

“We move and distribute 75,000 pounds of food a week throughout the whole year,” Philip Yates says, “so that need, it doesn’t slow down so please keep on giving.”

“ACCESS does a wonderful job here,” Bob Ames says, “and it really spreads by doing for others it kind of leads you to want to help.”

ACCESS serves about 4,000 families in Jackson County.
