DirectLink is a Donation Site for the Canby Kiwanis and Mt. Angel Mission Benedict Toy & Food Drives

'Tis the season of giving, and DirectLink is proud to again support local community toy & food drives by serving as a donation drop-off site at our Canby and Mt. Angel offices.

Kiwanis Canby Community Food & Toy Drive

DirectLink will have a donation barrel in our Canby lobby through December 15 for new, unwrapped gifts.

Since 1958, the entire Canby community has joined together to provide food and toys for neighbors in need. In 2022, the Kiwanis Canby Community Food & Toy Drive was able to provide food gift cards to 460 local families and gifts to 1,100 children.

In addition to toys, the Kiwanis Club of Canby is asking for tax-deductible monetary donations to purchase food vouchers. For those that could use some help this holiday season, applications are available at local schools, The Canby Center, Canby Public Library, Canby Kiwanis Thrift Store, and the Canby Adult Center. Applications are due December 6.
