Covid 19 has brought increased economic hardship to the most vulnerable populations in Lane County. The Palmo Center for Peace and Education is partnering with Food for Lane County to deliver food boxes to 30 families each week. There are also projects to make Friday lunches for the homeless and to collect donations for Huerto de la Familia, a community garden outreach program.
If you have a need or would like to be involved in these "Compassion in Action " projects, please email Sharon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
