The Giving Season Is Here!

Dear Friends and Community Partners,

It has been a challenging but rewarding year for Community Services Consortium, and we couldn't have done it without you.

Through your donations and support of events like the Barrel to Keg Relay and our American Winter screening, we can continue our mission to end poverty in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln County.

As we enter into the holiday season, we hope that you will include CSC in your giving plans. We are proud to announce the launch of our Giving Season Catalog, which makes it easy for you to give a gift in your name or on behalf of a loved one. Gifts to specific programs - housing, food & nutrition, and education - are available in a wide range of amounts.
This year, we are also participating in Giving Tuesday on December 3. You've heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday - now there is Giving Tuesday, a day to give back. Giving Tuesday is the perfect day to support CSC with a general donation (just use the "Donate" button on our home page at or a selection from the Giving Season catalog.

Thank you for your generosity and support in our fight to end poverty! Happy holidays from all of us here at Community Services Consortium!

Welcome to CSC's blog and e-newsletter!

These communications tools can be used to make announcements, acknowledge donors and volunteers, post videos and slideshows–whatever we want to share with our online community.

There are 3 ways to deliver info to stakeholders:

  1. The blog itself, which can be linked to our current website
  2. Email news blasts (blog articles sent via email as eNewsletters)
  3. RSS Feed (subscribers read in Google Reader or other feed reader, can also send posts to Facebook and Twitter)
We're excited about these communication tools and look forward to both your input and feedback for continuing improvement and positive information-sharing.

If you have agency/program information you'd like posted on this blog, please send full text and/or photos and videos, ideas, or suggestions to Janet Hessel and she will take the next steps.
