We would be remiss in our stated mission of helping those suffering from mental illnesses — what we call brain diseases — if we did not acknowledge those who support our mission. We would like to extend our appreciation to the unknown donor who made a significant cash donation to us through a third party source. This donation will definitely help in our mission.
We would also like to thank the many locals who support our group, both through attendance at our monthly meeting and through your patronage at PennyWise Thrift Store in Warrenton. And for your concern during our recent medical emergencies. Not only do you help those with brain diseases but also the homeless, those on low fixed incomes, and senior citizens.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Beverly Jackson-Shumaker, one of the founding members of the Warrenton Warming Center, for allowing us to distribute lunches to those less fortunate who patronize our shop.
Without your continuing support during the past nine years, we would not have been able to continue serving our communities of Astoria, Warrenton, Seaside, Cannon Beach, and Knappa/Svenson in Oregon, and Ilwaco, Chinook, Long Beach, and Naselle in Washington.
Again, thank you for your support.
