Raiders doing their part to fight hunger


The Oakland Raiders are partnering with the Alameda County Community Food Bank to help their neighbors in need as the region braces for a spike in need during the winter and holiday season.
Staff and families of the Raiders organization are sorting, screening, boxing and shelving food items in preparation for the busy holiday season in the Food Bank’s main warehouse in Oakland today, a week prior to Thanksgiving.
In addition, a number of Raiders players will spend their lone day off during the week—the Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving— visiting the food bank and assisting in the preparation of food items.
Fans are encouraged to support the Food Bank’s hunger relief efforts this Sunday before the Raiders-Saints game at the Coliseum by visiting their booth in Raiderville from 8:30 am – noon.
Fans are asked to make a monetary donation or donations of healthy non-perishable food items, such as canned meats and vegetables, pasta and sauce, peanut butter and low-sugar cereals. All proceeds go directly to the Food Bank’s hunger relief efforts.
Since 1985, the Alameda County Community Food Bank has been at the forefront of hunger-relief efforts in the Bay Area. This year the Food Bank will distribute 24 million pounds of food, more than half farm-fresh produce. The Food Bank serves one in six Alameda County residents by distributing food through a network of 275 food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community organizations.
For more information, visit www.raiders.com and www.accfb.org.
The Oakland Raiders are hosting a virtual food drive, encouraging fans to donate money to help the Food Bank purchase its most needed items. To participate, please go to https://www.vfd-accfb.org/grouphome.aspx?ID=555

    Nope O, try again.

    League of Nations partition of Palestine gave Israel ‘legal legitimacy’. Nothing more actually.

    Britain didn’t assist Israel when the Arabs refused to accept partition and their Armies attacked to destroy the nascent Jewish state.

    No one helped.

    No arms from Britain or the USA. No British or American soldiers fought for Israel.

    Just a good old fashioned whupping, without anyone’s help.

    Quite miraculous actually, even though over 1% of Israel’s population perished fighting the Arab pariahs off.

    In fact, as late as the 1967 war Israel recieved virtually no armaments from the USA.

    That war was won largely with French built Mirage jet fighters and some of the greatest pilots ever to fly.

    This, after Nasser and Assad with full Soviet backing and the latest armaments promised to finish Hitler’s work. Their words.

    6 days ? LMAO ! Beeech has longer sessions with Spearmint Rhino strippers.

    Cuzz, you’re not taking ANYTHING back. Wasn’t yours to begin with.

    The sooner you accept it, the better off the entire world will be.

    smartest thing you’ve said all week….

    With any luck, it will be the totality.

  • So Israel had an army before the 1940’s? Why didn’t help its own people against the evil hitler who was burning them alive?
    Stop your bs. Britain gave you the country it colonized, and the US helped you for years. Where did you get the best Air Force from in the 60’s and 70’s? You built it? I didn’t know you built f16 and 15s.
    Like I said dude. Enjoy your century (if that), it will be an Arab county again.

    No, haven’t been in it before. Which works best individual or group?

  • You guys are so strong, so why didn’t you give Hitler a good Whupping? Why didn’t you colonize the area and defeat the Ottoman Empire?
    Like I said, we can debate all you want, but don’t lie or exaggerate. It makes your argument less credible.

    BTW, I’m not saying I want the proposed common enemy of the Israelis and Arabs to prevail. I only want the common enemy to force them to fight together for mutual survival. Keeps them from fighting each other.

    Beech, since KK may be looking for a career change, what kind of skills, training, and experience might need to accumulate in order to follow in your footsteps?!

    Wouldn’t know beech. Just hoped you’d finally sought help.

    Raider O. I’ll readily admit to being ignorant of the political and geographical history of the Middle East. Read good reviews of Jimmy Carters book ‘Blood of Abraham’. Those reviews worth a crap?

    Great. Now that you see it works, maybe you can answer my question.

  • depcharger

    hmmmm. why don’t they do their part in stopping the opponent from SCORING!!!!!

  • CVRaider

    That’s the second TD pass that idiot has dropped this year. David Ausberry is during on the sideline though? Myers has always sucked, will always suck and its a terrible blocker.
