    Food and Clothing Drives
    By - Wayne Miya - Executive Director
    Winter is always a difficult season - with the Holidays, and cold and wet weather, and the long nights, it can sometimes be difficult for our clients to maintain a comfortable household and positive attitudes.  Since all of our clients are low income, many times they don't have enough money to pay their bills and also...

    Pets and Pet Care
    By - Wayne Miya - Executive Director
    Pets are a critical part of many of our clients lives.  Not only do they provide unconditional love and companionship, but they also can help with those who tend to "isolate" or are suffering from depression.  They provide a reason to care for another living thing - that is dependent upon us for their care.

    The Rising Cost of Food
    By - Wayne Miya - Executive Director
    As you know, whenever we go to the grocery store these days we notice how much more things cost now than they did five years ago, or even last year.  Our food costs for Esther's Pantry and our facilities have gone up significantly!  Lucky for us, we have some very generous local grocers who donate fresh food to us...

    A New Home
    By - Wayne Miya - Executive Director
    This month we were able to move into a new home for Esther's and Tod's.  Providence Health and Services provided two separate locations for the food pantry and the free thrift store.  It is only two blocks from the previous location.  An added bonus are the waiting rooms at each location.  This means...

    Searching for a new location
    By - Wayne Miya - Executive Director
    Recently, we found out that the building that Esther's Pantry now occupies has been sold.  The closing date is somewhere around February, and we will need to relocate soon.  We have been looking at several possible sites, but have not yet secured one.  Because the previous landlord (Providence) paid for the...

    Esther's Pantry Update
    By - Wayne Miya - Project Leader
    Esther's Pantry minimizes the stigma that many HIV+ people feel when they are out in the community.  Here, they are not judged, but often form friendships with others who share the same issues.  There are 4000 people living with HIV in the Portland metro area, and many of those are below the poverty level and have...
