The Columbian

WASHOUGAL — The Camas-Washougal Community Chest and the Camas-Washougal Rotary Foundation have awarded 35 grants totaling $140,290 to nonprofit organizations delivering services exclusively to local children and families. Both amounts are records.

The grants will fund emergency food assistance, aid to families in crisis or needing emergency services, safe temporary shelter for at-risk youth, a severe weather shelter program at the Washougal Senior Center, a homeless family day center located at St. Thomas Aquinas in Camas, and enhancing the habitat of Gibbons Creek in Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge.

Organizations receiving first-time grants offer services such as a suicide- prevention program at Washougal High School; occupational, speech, physical and specialty therapy services; English ivy removal on Camas public lands; water-quality monitoring in the Lacamas watershed; and construction of an 18-hole disc golf course on the Odyssey Middle School and Discovery High School campus.
