Silverton Community Honors Adventists

November 01, 2002 | Betty Nelson

Cathey Defehr and Ramona Resseger, co-directors of Silverton, Ore., Adventist Community Services, recently accepted an honorary plaque from Silverton Together, a volunteer organization.

The plaque commemorates the cooperation between the church and the city group in feeding, clothing, and assisting those in need.

The two women work with about 20 regular volunteers on Thursday mornings, 8:30-12:30, giving out bread and baked goods. Last year alone, the group gave out more than 10,000 items of clothing, home furnishings, and boxes of food. •
