Dave & Bill
Bill Haug and Dave Richardson roll into our office every Friday morning with smiles on their faces. They are passionate cyclists, avid beer drinkers, and active in the community at Trinity Episcopal. Their role with Lift Urban Portland is to pick-up donated food from Trader Joe’s.
Yet they do so much more.
Often times there is so much food, it takes their skill to pack everything in our van. They agree to pick up food donation barrels sprinkled around the city, offer to assist with delivering food boxes on occasion, schlep our recycling to the recycle center, and then pack their car with garbage to dump. Despite the weather challenges (that often fell on Friday mornings), they always were committed to getting Trader Joe’s food on our pantry shelves.
If you see them out in the community, know that you are witnessing some of our most reliable volunteers committed to reducing hunger in NW and Downtown Portland.
