County Farm Bureaus and Women’s Advisory Council Donate Thousands to Families in Need

Members of OFB's Women's Advisory Council and OFB staff teamed up to buy $3,800 in groceries (15 shopping carts) for Portland's two Ronald McDonald House Charities in March. For years, Farm Bureau volunteers have been lending a hand to RMHCs nationwide. Volunteers included Anne Rigor, Kristie Glaser, Kendra Glaser, Jesse De Jager, Penny Cox and Jana Jenkins. OFB staffer Victoria Flowers was also present to help.


“I am elated to be able to shop and deliver these groceries to the Portland Ronald McDonald Houses,” said Anne Rigor (Benton County Farm Bureau), who has led the donation effort the last several years. “The depth of gratitude from the families and the houses themselves is profoundly moving. This donation empowers them to devote their full attention to their loved ones during their time of need."

Ronald McDonald House Charities is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation that creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. RMHC programs help families with ill or injured children stay together and near leading hospitals and health care services worldwide, ensuring they have access to the medical care their child needs while fully supported and actively involved in their child’s care.


Many thanks to the following County Farm Bureaus for their dedication to the program throughout the years: Polk, Yamhill, Benton, Columbia, Lane, Multnomah, Marion, Douglas, and Linn. Thousands of families have already benefited from their donations and so will thousands more as the program continues to grow. The next giving event is scheduled for April 22nd and will contribute to the Springfield Ronald McDonald House.
