The Camas Lions Club and local business, Triangle Resources, will help beautify a Camas-Washougal nonprofit this weekend.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 17, Lions Club members will clear old hedges and cleanup the Inter-Faith Treasure House.
According to the Lions Club’s press release, the project came about after local Lions Club members visited the Treasure House to learn about the services the nonprofit provides in Camas and Washougal.
“We are impressed with the operations and services the Treasure House provides to people in our community,” said Camas Lion Club President Casey O’Dell in the release. “We want to do our part by lending them a helping hand at their facility. Community service projects like these are right up our alley.”
When the Lions Club members approached employees at the Camas-based Triangle Resources, a waste management business that accepts self-haul yard debris like weeds, brush and leaves, the Lions discovered Triangle Resources was happy to help.
“We are grateful Triangle Resources is donating their service fees for the hedge removal project. When groups volunteer their time and businesses make contributions, it allows us to utilize funds on programs that directly help the needy,” Treasure House Director Nancy Wilson stated in the press release.
