Responding quickly to community emergencies
Community emergency needs can arise at the blink of an eye. Sometimes those emergency needs are not reached through one of our existing programs. NEW in 2020 we started our Outreach Program which allows us to make a one-time donation to an organization within our community that is serving an emergency situation that one of our programs does not currently cover.
Each year we budget an amount that is held in reserve to use at a moment’s notice. We put this program to good use during the recent COVID-19 pandemic. We donated $1,000 to the Clatsop County Food Bank and $1,000 to Warrenton Food Pantry. We know these dollars went a long way towards helping hungry families within the community.
