Marge Milnor from Peoples Bank suprised us one day as she walked in holding a $500 check! She and her bank are very supportive of our agency, they even added us as one of their recipients of the Community Connections CD.

Thank you Marge for your support and the generosity of Peoples Bank!

Thank you Jennifer Washington and the Upper Skagit Tribe for your $30,000 to help the Skagit Food Distribution Center!

Thank you Cargill

Community Action would like to thank Jackie Bailey, Bob Hill, and the Cargill Corporation for the generous donation of $5,000 to purchase food for the low-income and homeless people in Skagit County. A special thank you to Jackie Bailey who applied for the Nourishing People Challenge Fund Grant through the Cargill corporate office after reading about the need from our website.

Thank you Medina

March 2, 2010

      Skagit County Community Action Agency would like to thank the Medina Foundation for the recent $25,000 grant awarded to develop a Community Resource Center located at Community Action’s Mount Vernon office location. The Community Resource Center (CRC) will be a drop-in center for low-income people who are unsure of the services available to them and who need help identifying and connecting with those services.

     Community Action saw a record high of over 36,000 individuals last year, many needing services for the first time. The CRC will provide clear and simple referral information, both online and in written form, a kiosk for self-service, a computer linked to the internet to help determine DSHS eligibility and the like, a phone available for client use, as well as caring, knowledgeable staff. The Medina Foundation makes this much needed center possible as we see more and more of our neighbors in need of services.  For more information, please contact Justin Keefe at 360-416-7585 or visit www.skagitcap.org.

 

  

Thank you Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound

June 24, 2010

 

     Skagit County Community Action Agency would like to thank the Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound for the recent $40,000 grant awarded to renovate and expand our main entry and connect our two main office locations at 330 Pacific Place and 2221 Riverside Drive in Mount Vernon. The new entryway will create a more welcoming entrance to the agency and expand our reception area.

     Community Action saw a record high of over 36,000 individuals last year, many needing services for the first time. The reconfigured entryway will create a more welcoming entrance, especially for new clients who are dealing with stress and confusion, and direct them more efficiently and effectively to the services they need. This grant from the Employees Community Fund makes this much needed renovation possible, as we see more and more of our neighbors in need of a hand up.
