Clackamas Fire donates winter clothing items to those in need (Photo) - 12/21/18

Clackamas Fire District #1’s staff and off-duty firefighters helped serve a Feed the Hungry meal on Sunday, Dec. 9 at St. John Episcopal Church, 2036 SE Jefferson Street in Milwaukie. Clackamas Fire has supported Feed the Hungry for the past 17 years, serving one or two meals throughout the year.  Through their years in volunteering, it was apparent the gift of hospitality to the community could be stretched further during the winter season. 

Clackamas Fire conducted their seventh annual Winter Warming Drive to collect gently used coats and new hats, gloves, scarves, socks, blankets and personal hygiene items for adults. Clackamas Fire furnished collection barrels mid-October through mid-November at the Fire District’s Administration Office, Fire Prevention Office and Boring Fire Station 14. The collected items were donated to the Feed the Hungry to give out over 150 sets of coats, hats, gloves, scarves, socks and blankets to distribute to dinner guests during the time that Clackamas Fire served their Feed the Hungry meal on Sunday, Dec. 9.

In addition to the items collected from the barrels, Clackamas Fire received $3,750 in donations from the Clackamas Fire District #1 Volunteer Firefighters Association, Clackamas Emergency Services Foundation, Professional Firefighters of Clackamas County Local 1159, and from several other area citizens and organizations. The funds were used to purchase additional gently used coats and new winter items. A warm thank you to Reser’s Fine Foods in Beaverton whose staff collected coats and winter clothing items to donate towards the drive.

Feed the Hungry tries to put the meals on as if people were invited to dinner within their own homes. Dinner guests don’t have to stand in line, and they are let into the lobby to enjoy snacks and beverages before the meal begins. The Feed the Hungry began in 1991 by St. John Episcopal Church, which is now a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Feed the Hungry uses St. John’s kitchen and parish hall to serve Sunday meals. The success and longevity of Feed the Hungry can be widely attributed to community support, such as area high schools, Rotary Clubs, churches, public agencies, and citizen volunteers.

There’s always opportunity to give back and to be of service to the community. If you would like to help out by volunteering to serve a meal or to donate winter clothing items, contact Feed the Hungry at 503.653.5880 or by email: fthmilwaukie@gmail.com.
