Camas teen seeks funds to build mobile produce wash station

The Columbian

CAMAS — A Camas teen is raising money to build a mobile produce washing station for the 78th Street Heritage Farm, as part of his Eagle Scout project. Helping those suffering from food insecurity has been a passion project for Alex Kamlin, who regularly volunteers at the Oregon Food Bank. “I was 10 when I first started volunteering at (Oregon Food Bank) and had completed 100 hours of service by the time I was 14,” Kamlin said. He helped plant a garden at the 78th Street Heritage Farm that provided produce for a new tiny home village in Clark County. “In order to build the project, I need to raise money for the wood and other items needed for the wash station,” Kamlin said. “I will then manage a team of volunteers to put it together. All of which needs to be finished before I turn 18 on Nov. 21, 2021.” Kamlin started a GoFundMe to raise the money. He’s already raised $250 in less than a day and said any excess funds will be donated to the 78th Street Heritage Farm. To donate, visit
