Walmart Foundation Gives $25,000 to Support the Emergency Services Program
On July 29, ShelterCare gratefully received a grant for $25,000 at a barbecue hosted by our Family Housing Program. David Fuller, a representative of the Walmart Foundation Oregon State Giving Program, presented the program with the check for general support of ShelterCare’s services for families with children who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness.The food was generously provided by the congregation of Central Presbyterian Church, which has been a long-time supporter of ShelterCare. Family Housing Program Manager Char Hall looks on. Many church members were there to help serve the food and spend time getting to know residents of the program.“With more families than ever facing the prospect of homelessness, this grant from the Walmart Foundation’s Oregon State Giving Program is most welcome,” said Susan Ban, Executive Director of ShelterCare.
