ROSEBURG, Ore. -- People in Douglas County are getting a chance to enjoy some wine while also giving back to the community.

UCAN, the United Community Action Network, is holding its second annual Pouring for Generosity campaign.

Fourteen local wineries choose their own way of donating.

Some spots include wine tastings or even giveaways.

"It reflects the diversity of the wine region," says UCAN Food Bank Manager Sarah McGregor, "the diversity of what people do with their wineries and how they want to engage with the community."

For every dollar collected, UCAN can purchase three meals.

Last year, the campaign raised about $5,000.

Pouring for Generosity runs through the end of August.
