2020 Updates & Roof Fundraising

 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

  •   15 - 8" Apple pies  $8.00
      7 - 8" Strawberry Rhubarb pies  $8.00
      8 - 9" Strawberry Rhubarb pies  $9.00
      3 - 8" Cherry pies  $8.00
      3 - 8" Peach pies  $8.00
      2 - 8" Guava pies $8.00
      1 - 9" Mixed Berry $9.00
      4 - 9" Apple Pie  $9.00

    We have the following pies for $12.00

    1 - 9" Pumpkin Pie
    2 - 9" Pecan Pies
  • 5 - 9" Dutch Apple pies  $8.00

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.
