Grant moves SOS closer to construction goal

Posted: Tuesday, Mar 11th, 2014

“We have been very pleasantly surprised by this progress and are well ahead of our original schedule.” David Wiegan SOS Executive Director

Siuslaw Outreach Services has been awarded a grant of $20,000 from the Collins Foundation in Portland. The grant will be used for a new roof and remodel of the SOS building on 12th Street.

The building project was initiated in March 2013 and is budgeted at $140,000. The total raised to date is $61,350 with several other foundation grants still pending.

The remodel portion is intended to double the amount of space available for donated items such as clothing and household goods. The roof has been repaired many times over the years and is well overdue for replacement.
