In the immediate neighborhood we support the local Food Bank at Neighborhood House with donations of food and household supplies and an annual financial gift.  We also support the SWCHC, the local medical center for basic and referral services to uninsured workers and families (now expanded to serve Washington County, adjacent to Portland with a sizable immigrant population).  Our volunteering members provide meals to volunteer medical personnel staffing some of the evening clinics, in Portland, and have provided office and technical support to the administrators of the center.
