Fred Meyer customers and employees donated more than $467,000 in change to youth development in Alaska, Idaho, Washington and Oregon.
Chehalem Youth and Family Service received $2,704 of those dollars. CYFS provides residential services, counseling, supervised visitation and other services for children and families of Oregon.
The fundraiser spanned from Feb. 3 to May 25.
It may not seem like much, but those small donations really add up, said Melinda Merrill, public affairs director for Fred Meyer Stores. Were grateful to our customers for donating their change and to our employees for donating their hard-earned money to the Fred Meyer Fund.
