BENEFITING: CANBY CENTER

THE STORY:

DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE IN CANBY WHO HAS A NEED?

  • Recent data shows 790 Canby households live below the poverty line
  • 50% of our elementary students are living in poverty
  • 278 of our school age children are currently homeless
  • Gangs are recruiting students as young as the 5th grade
  • Unemployment is rampant
  • Many individuals need medical and dental assistance

IN RESPONSE TO THESE NEEDS, DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE CANBY CENTER (TCC) HAS DONE?

Since 2007, the community has donated $1,745,335 to assist those in need.  Volunteers have donated tens of thousands of hours of service.  Community partners are essential to programs not limited to:

Health

  • Partnering with local professionals to receive dental and vision service
  • Assistance for medical needs

Food

  • Partnering with TCC, churches, local organizations and concerned citizens to provide 9,098 backpacks of food for children fighting hunger during the academic year
  • Partnering with the Canby School District for feeding 1507 free meals to students during the summer
  • Harvest share: An average of 32 families receiving food on Tuesdays.
  • Partnering with St. Vincent DePaul food  bus on Thursdays to provide on average 125 meals a week

Education

  • Last year providing 315 backpacks filled with school supplies to start the school year
  • 50 at-risk students mentored

Clothing

  • Last year distributing over 20 tons of donated clothing which benefited 432 families and over 1700 individuals         

Relationship

  • Developing relationships with client to enhance self worth and make them feel a part of the community
  • Create an environment where children have positive interactions and learn life skills

WHO THEN IS THIS CANBY CENTER? 

  • The Canby Center was formed in 2007 by faith-based community leaders concerned about the impacts of growing poverty and homelessness in Canby. As a result, a non-profit 501c(3) corporation was created
  • Six years after its creation, The Canby Center along with various churches, community groups and concerned citizens offers a broad array of providing assistance in the areas of food, heating, hygiene, health, education and housing
  • The Canby Center assists the needy and provides opportunities for those with obstacles to become self-sufficient

HOW YOU CAN BE INVOLVED

The plan is to continue and expand these programs and to ensure The Canby Center stays a part of the City of Canby’s life stream. Consequently, we need your support to make this happen.  Here are examples of how your financial donation changes lives:

  • $100 provides clothing for 20 people
  • $2,500 provides over $18,000 worth of dental care to 37 people
  • $265.00 provides 4 people eye exams and glasses
  • $570 provides food for 250 children for the weekend

As we close out 2013, would you please consider making a donation to help us meet our goal of continuing and expanding our programs?  This is an investment in the community that gives our neighbors a place to know they can find hope and relief in their times of need.  We encourage you to join in this important work by making a tax deductible contribution to The Canby Center so the programs for the needy and self-sufficiency can be continued and expanded.
