Donut Day 2016 was a tremendous success for the St. Helens Police Department and the Columbia Pacific Food Bank. With your help, we were able to convert 3,600 donuts into 3,237 pounds of food and $2,484 in cash. According to the food bank, this will convert into 10,000 meals for this community. We thank everyone who braved the cold weather to be a part of our success. We also share an appreciation for all of the volunteers and entertainers who helped to make Donut Day possible. Merry Christmas St. Helens!
