Portland, OR. Recognized throughout the Pacific Northwest as one of the “Largest Holiday Light Shows West of the Mississippi,” the 29th annual Safeway Winter Wonderland features colorful light displays around every corner.
All proceeds from the event benefit Sunshine Division‘s year-round hunger relief efforts that provide thousands of free, nutritious meals to Portland families in need. The Sunshine Division offers free food and clothing assistance for qualifying Portlanders at an on-site food pantry and clothing rooms and through food box programs and a no-cost food bank.
Sunshine Division administrators explain, “We offer food assistance six days a week at our N Thompson location, five days a week at our SE Stark location, as well as 24/7 through our partnership with the Portland Police Bureau who store food boxes at each police precinct that can be dispatched to people in need at any time. In addition to food relief, we also offer new and gently used clothing.”
