On August 6th, 2018 Catalyst Financial hosted our 5th Annual Charity Event! We are proud to announce that together with our generous community and friends we raised over $26,000 this year! One hundred percent of the money raised went directly to our featured charity, Sanctuary Food Pantry, along with our past charities; Good News Community Health Center, My Father’s House, and the Boxes of Love Project.
Sanctuary Food Pantry, located in Gresham on Orient Drive, provides food and household support to the East County community year round. Volunteers work daily serving approximately 500 people every week, assisting individuals and families who need a ‘hand-up’ in weathering various life situations.
In 2017, our Annual Charity Event raised over $27,000 for the Good News Community Health Center! We can make a big difference in our community when we join together to care for our neighbors.
The Good News Community Health Center is a medical clinic located in Rockwood, Oregon, providing whole-person medical care to our low-income, refugee, and immigrant neighbors. They offer this care through a full-time medical clinic, along with mini-clinics, and many restorative programs. GNCHC offers compassionate restorative care to those who otherwise would not have access.
In 2016, Catalyst held our Annual Charity Event supporting My Father’s House. My Father’s House offers hope to homeless families through shelter, education, and job training. Their specialized program works with the entire family in securing jobs and finding housing of their own.
Through the generosity of our sponsors and participants, we were able to raise over $20,000 for My Father’s House! This money went a long way in giving hope to the homeless.
In 2015, Catalyst Financial NW held our Annual Charity Event, this time supporting Boxes of Love. The community saw the need to support this worthy cause, and through the Annual Charity Event which included a golf tournament, banquet, and raffle, we were able to raise $16,000 for Boxes of Love!
Boxes of Love provides local children who are being placed into foster care with a box of new clothing and other comfort items to call their own. It is the mission of the Boxes of Love Project to let these children know that they are loved, valued and special.
