Who We Are

Our Roots

In 1923, volunteers from the Hood River Elks Lodge joined together to provide toys and food to local families in need.  A tradition began and continues through to today.  

The Hood River County Christmas Project is dedicated to providing age-appropriate gifts and food to families in need in Hood River County during the Christmas holiday.  More than 300 volunteers in 2019 helped put together baskets.  Blue barrels throughout town and at local businesses take in donations.
