UCAN's 'Cans Film Festival' raises food bank donations
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A non-profit group in Roseburg gave families the chance to help the community and enjoy a movie at the same time.
The United Community Action Network hosted its “Cans Film Festival."
Each person had to donate three cans of food to see a movie at the Roseburg Cinema.
Organizers say it was great to see families give back while spending time together.
"Low income families that can't come out to the movies if there's not an opportunity like this, and in support, we're kind of mashing two things together,” said organizer Tom Maloney.
All the food collected will be donated to the UCAN Food Bank in Douglas County.
