Summertime… and the livin’ is easy. Well, easier maybe, but we’re thinking of the cold weather ahead, the challenges it creates for homeless families, and how our winter gala, “A Moment In Time,” will help. Sponsors, donations of good wine, and silent auction items are needed! Will you take time to help?
Raise a pint with friends Oct. 30 at Ninkasi Brewing Company and help homeless families with children at First Place Family Center. Beginning at noon a portion of proceeds from pints sold will go to First Place. Hot Mama's Wings await. Irish Echo takes the stage at 7 p.m. Don't miss this uniquely Eugene event!

An angel-in-training raised the woof Oct. 2 as part of St. Vincent de Paul’s annual culinary tribute to its volunteers, donors and business partners. Zippy, a Pomeranian mix, follows in the footsteps of the late Tikva, a legendary crisis response dog owned and trained by Cindy Ehlers of Eugene.
After an extended campout by set-up staff from Lane County, St. Vinnie’s opened in the Dalles Sept. 25, continuing a long tradition of social enterprise and extending a lifeline that will help sustain emergency services provided by St. Vincent de Paul, The Dalles. Over nearly two months this summer the facility was expanded, reconfigured, redecorated and stocked with the stuff of St. Vinnie's success: Affordable clothing, housewares, furniture, appliances, books and the all-important treasures.
