Barrels of Hope

Join us in making a difference for years to come when you support our Barrels of Hope campaign!

Our Barrels of Hope campaign is raising funds to create 10 uniquely designed barrels to be used in food drives across our community. Our goal is to raise $12,650 by February 29, 2024.

We believe that art has the power to create positive change and hope to enrich our community through uplifting and visually stimulating food collection barrels located at organizations throughout Josephine County. Our goal is to premier these barrels at the 2024 Boatnik parade. They will then be placed in the lobbies of various organizations throughout Josephine County or used by us during food drives for years to come!

Businesses, this is your chance to shine! We encourage local businesses to sponsor a barrel for $1,265 and align your organization with a meaningful cause. Your sponsorship will create a lasting impact in our community and serve as a vibrant symbol of support. If you want to sponsor a barrel, please follow the link below to complete our sponsorship form. For more information about sponsorship, please contact Patrice Hanlon at (541) 479-5556 or

Local artists are also invited to participate in this impactful project by submitting their sketches for approval. Selected artists will receive a stipend of $750 per barrel. For more information and to submit a proposal, please fill out our Artist Inquiry form below.
