Medford, December 15, 2020: The 20th annual ACCESS Food and Fund Drive holiday light display at Greystone Court begins Monday, December 21st and continues through Christmas Eve. The event runs each night from 5:30 – 9:30 p.m.
The residents of Greystone Court will be accepting donations of nonperishable food items and cash donations for the ACCESS food bank to help those struggling with hunger in Jackson County. Greystone Court is located off North Phoenix Road in east Medford.
During these four nights, Asante will generously match up to $5,000 of donations collected from the community. Every dollar donated can provide four meals. ACCESS also accepts secure donations online at www.accesshelps.org or Text-to-Give by texting “Greystone” to 44-321.

In its 20th year, the Greystone Court Food and Fund Drive has provided close to 1.4 million meals to help those struggling with food insecurity. Each year, more than 4,000 cars will drive through the cul-de-sac during the four days.
