The Clackamas Emergency Services Foundation (Foundation) is hosting its 8th annual dinner and auction on March 16, 2019 at the Gray Gables in Milwaukie. The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise money for those in need and we would like your support!
Our mission is “To provide humanitarian assistance to those who have been adversely affected by disaster, tragedy, injury, or other misfortune, and to work actively toward preventing or minimizing the impact of such misfortunes in our community.”
The Foundation was formed in 1998 to provide funds to help people in need within the
community. The Foundation consists of the following emergency service agencies – Clackamas Fire District #1, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, Milwaukie Police and Oregon City Police.
For those who have experienced a fire, accident or other tragedy, Foundation funds can provide a warm hotel room in the middle of the night, a change of clothes, or necessary toiletries and food until other social services agencies can step in.
Our Foundation is active in making the community a safer place for our citizens. Funds raised will help support food programs, bicycle helmets for kids, place automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) in the community (over 400 have been placed to date) and other needs. Annual giving has provided funds for the Children’s Center, Feeding the Hungry, Inc. and Operation Santa Claus.
We are asking for your support so we can enable the firefighters and law enforcement officers in our community to continue to provide help to those who need our assistance.
