From Pamplin Media – Clackamas Service Center gains ‘powerful’ tool to fight hunger
November 23 2021
The 8,000-square-foot space is designed to meet growing need for food aid across county.
Clackamas Service Center will be having a ribbon cutting ceremony at its new warehouse. This creates a second location for the nonprofit organization to serve unsheltered people and families experiencing food insecurity.
Clackamas Service Center Executive Director Debra Mason is celebrating the recent opening of a new 8,000-square-foot warehouse in Clackamas County to meet the growing need for food aid while also providing logistics support for smaller food-aid organizations. Mason sees the warehouse with walk-in refrigeration and shelving as part of a multi-year capital campaign that will facilitate the expansion of CSC’s main site at 8800 S.E. 80th Ave., which only had a 1,500-square-foot basement to store food.
