Through the month of November we invited our customers and employees alike to donate non-perishable food items aka “side dishes” for 15 Thanksgiving food baskets that we would be putting together for local families here in Tigard. Artistic Auto Body as a company would supply the main course. We had an overwhelming response and were able to collect over 500 cans and boxes of veggies, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, cider… you name it! Needless to say we had plenty of food for these 15 baskets and all the rest went to a transitional home, also in Tigard, that helps families gain the power of self-sufficiency. Our eyes and hearts lit up every time a one of our gracious customers would walk through the door with arms full of food! They were literally coming in by the bag full…we also had 6 fresh baked pies donated to us from Jen at Banning’s Pie House, just off 99W. As a company, we feel as though our job is not complete unless we find ways to also help our community thrive. We are all in this together and we have a lot to be grateful for!
