Donation request for those in need

At this Year’s Holiday Party, we will be collecting Cans of Food for the Oregon Food Bank and clothing donations for the Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s (EMO) HIV Day Center.

The Oregon Food Bank helps nearly one in five households fend off hunger by
distributing food through a variety of sources through a statewide network. Their
local programs provide food directly to people who are hungry in the form of
boxes of food for people to take home or prepared meals. The Oregon Food Bank
Network serves an average of 270,000 people each month.

The HIV Day Center is a non-denominational project of the EMO and is housed
at the Ainsworth United Church of Christ located at NE 30th Avenue and
Ainsworth Blvd. This center provides over 700 meals each month to low income
people dealing with HIV in addition to providing counseling, clothing, showers,
recreational therapy, access to computers & phones, and mutual support.

The CNA encourages neighbors to bring one or more of the following items to the Holiday Party to donate:

  • Warm Coats & Jackets in good condition, particularly for men, for the HIV Day Center.
  • Cans of Food for the Oregon Food Bank
