The Agape House extends service to five-day week
HERMISTON - The Agape House will add another day of operation starting Feb. 5. Agape House, which dispenses food to low-income clients, cut back to a four-day business week last year during a budget crisis.
When an anonymous benefactor offered to match up to $15,000 in donations, local givers more than doubled the challenge amount. Donations totalled $32,500, not counting the original $15,000.
Director Dave Hughes called public response "wonderful."
New hours are 10-11:45 a.m. and 1-2:45 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The dinner is sponsored by First Presbyterian Church, First Christian Church and First United Methodist Church to help offset the cost of the bus to transport children to the summer day camp/vacation Bible school held at Westminster Woods Camp near Meacham.
The cost for the meal is $6 for adults, $3 for children 10 and younger, or $25 for families.
