CSC Open House

Martha Lyon, Executive Director and Sharon Barricks from Citizens Bank at Greeter meeting at CSC.

Albany Greater Area Chamber of Commerce held their Greeters meeting at Community Services Consortium at 250 Broadalbin, Albany on the second floor of Two Rivers Market. The Greeters meeting paved the way for CSC’s Open House held from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00.

Sharon Barricks from Citizens Bank won a prize for guessing the increase of emergency food box requests July through September over the same period last year. The correct answer was 15%.

Executive director Martha Lyon hosted the event and talked about CSC’s services to low-income families in Linn, Benton and Lincoln counties.

The consortium is one of 18 community action networks statewide. It offers programs in energy, housing, education and nutrition. The Albany regional office is on the second floor of Two Rivers Market.
