Where is your heart today? Still full of joy from Thanksgiving treats or the deal you scored on Black Friday? Today you can share that joy by joining in #GivingTuesday. Here at SELCC, we make it easy to #GiveWhereYourHeartIs. Every dollar you give us is spent to help Mount Vernon and Lisbon residents.

Your donations are our single largest source of funding. We depend on the generosity of donors like you to keep our programs running. Each dollar helps us fill the food pantry, deliver hot meals to seniors, provide a safe place for kids to go after school, or give a warm coat to a child in need. You can help us give holiday food baskets to 80 local households, and gifts to over 120 individuals.

Take a few minutes to give online today, or send a check if you prefer. And if you’d like to give your time, join us as a volunteer. However you choose to give this holiday season, we give you our thanks!

Halloween Chili & Soup Supper

Who has time to cook on Halloween night? Come to Southeast Linn Community Center from 4:30-7:30 for a delicious, home-cooked meal instead. Fill up on chili, soup, grilled cheese sandwiches, desserts and drinks before you sample the kids’ candy haul.  The cost is only $6 for adults, $3 for ages 5-12, and free for kids under 5.

All proceeds support the programs of Southeast Linn. The Community Center provides services to children, seniors, and families of Lisbon and Mount Vernon. Your bowl of chili can help a child get a warm coat, a senior receive a home-delivered meal, or a family get a box of groceries for the week. After you are warmed up and full of good food, be sure to check out downtown Lisbon’s Halloween Town, for games and trick-or-treating with your neighbors and friends.
