February 11, 2014 | Richard Cook

Kids from families of Rivergate Adventist Elementary School in Gladstone, Ore., delivered 1,000 pounds of food to the Gladstone Park Community Services (GPCS) on Nov. 22, 2013. Chris Binder, local leader, reports an average of 440 low-income individuals among 140 families were helped by GPCS last year.

Every other Tuesday and Wednesday, trucks from the Oregon USDA Food Bank and Shop the Docks were unloaded, unpacked and distributed by Gladstone Park Church volunteers who showed up on a regular basis.
