Dear Seniors and Friends,
This has been a difficult year for many people in our area. With the schools being closed, this has been particularily hard for students and their parents, so We Love Rainier WA is hosting a "Lantern Walk" on New Year's Eve. You can read more about it on their Facebook page: We Love Rainier WA .
We have a couple of fundraisers to help earn money for a new roof and gutters.
1. "Pepper Jelly" that's made by Cindy Amidon. We have a few jars left at $7.00 each.
2. Pie sale. Pies range in price from $8.00 - $12.00

Due to grant funds we've received, we now have almost $15,000 in our building fund towards a new roof. I have written and sent out donation request letters and another grant for our roof. The cost of a new roof is in the mid $40,000 range. The cost for gutters runs between $4,000 - $6,000. We'really appreciate everyone's donation & support towards getting a new roof!
We just received a grant of $5,000 this week for a natural gas generator with an auto transfer switch. We had Ron Gibson, from Rainier Public Works, research and recommend a generator for our center. We now have 5 freezers, a commercial 2-door fridge and a side-by-side fridge. In an emergency, we could loose all of our food, so an emergency generator is important to have in the event of a power outtage.
