Fill the boat with fish

Monday, November 16, 2015

ROSEBURG, Ore – A boatload of canned fish is what organizers of a local food drive are hoping for this Friday, Nov. 20 at Sherm’s Thunderbird, 2553 NW Stewart Parkway, Roseburg. The drive runs 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

An empty drift boat will be parked near the entrance to Sherm’s to collect canned fish or monetary donations for The FISH of Roseburg, a local food pantry. The Umpqua Fisheries Enhancement Derby, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Oregon State Police are coordinating the event.

For the past two years, the Derby has held an auction “Frenzy” and raised more than $32,500 for The FISH to purchase canned tuna, salmon and mackerel for its food pantry. Derby organizers say the funds earmarked for The FISH are running low for the rest of the year and are hoping this fun food drive will help.
