CAMAS — Camas-based Peter R. Marsh Foundation recently awarded a Beaverton, Ore., student with its Student Silent Servant Award. Neel Jain, a student at Westview High School, received a $500 check from the foundation. One of the foundation’s goals is to reward students who serve their communities. The foundation, established in 2002, has a goal to recognize 250 students this school year. Jain started a nonprofit called PDX Concierge, a free grocery delivery service for disabled or older adults, immunocompromised individuals and others in need. The organization, which has made more than 200 deliveries so far, also serves Vancouver. Learn more about the foundation at or PDX Concierge at
