Annual ACCESS Food Drive at Greystone Court

Asante matching first $5000 in cash donations

(Medford, OR) – The annual food drive for ACCESS and Holiday light display at Greystone Court begins Thursday, Dec. 21 and continues through Christmas Eve. The event runs each night from 5:30 – 9:30 pm. 

The residents of Greystone Court will be there accepting donations of nonperishable food items and cash donations for ACCESS, to help feed hungry people right here in Jackson County.  ACCESS also accepts secure donations online - click here. Greystone Court is located off North Phoenix Road in east Medford.

Over the four nights Asante will generously match up to $5000 of your donations at Greystone Court. 

"This is such a unique event where everyone can view the lights and help thousands of local families," said Philip Yates, ACCESS Nutrition Programs Director. “This really helps fill the pantries around Jackson County after our Holiday programs put a large dent in our supplies.”

Santa will be there each night to greet the children and hand out candy canes. Human Bean will be handing out free sample cups of hot chocolate on Thursday night, Dec. 21.

This is the 17th year for the event. More than 4,000 cars are expected to drive through the cul-de-sac in four days. The first donation was made on December 22nd, 2001. So far, community members have contributed thousands of pounds of food and more than $300,000 dollars. 

“This is a huge effort by the families who live on Greystone Court. The generosity of those families, and the kindness of those who donate, helps to support those served by ACCESS,” said Pamela Norr, ACCESS Executive Director. "We are so grateful for this partnership."

Foods rich in protein are especially needed, including peanut butter, canned tuna, canned meat and beans. However, donations of any non-perishable food items such as rice, pasta, cold and hot cereals are always helpful.
