News Release
Friends of the Carpenter to Host Annual Meeting on Feb. 20 - 02/14/18

Vancouver, WA -- Friends of the Carpenter will host their annual meeting on Tues. Feb. 20, 7:30 p.m. at the Friendship Center, 1600 W 20th Street.

"The Board and I are pleased that Friends of the Carpenter continues the organization's legacy of providing safety, structure and a sense of purpose to members of our community," said Tom Iberle, executive director. "Our annual meeting is a time to reflect on our successes while renewing our commitment to meeting the ever-expanding needs of the homeless, people with special needs, community service workers and those living in poverty in our community."

The annual meeting will follow the February board meeting and will include a presentation of the 2017 Annual Report. A question and answer period will be provided, in addition to tours of the Friendship Center as well as light refreshments.

Friends of the Carpenter was incorporated in Vancouver, WA in Oct. 1998 and began as a vision of a practical outreach of simple welcome and personal interaction between volunteers from the church and people living in poverty. Since the beginning, regular contact has been made with the homeless and poor persons of our community through woodworking events scheduled throughout the community and which, today, are held at FOC's Friendship Center. Our mission: Friends of the Carpenter is a non-profit, faith-based day facility that provides safety, structure and purpose for vulnerable members of our community. Learn more at
