This week, Cowlitz County community organizations are set to distribute holiday dinner food boxes or host free meals for those in need.
On Wednesday, Lower Columbia CAP is handing out holiday dinner boxes from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cowlitz County Event Center.
People can enter the drive-thru line on Seventh Avenue. Pedestrians and bicycles are welcome. The distribution moved from CAP’s 12th Avenue building to the event center to help prevent traffic congestion, said Ilona Kerby, CAP executive director
The Longview-Kelso Building and Trades Council, Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Central Labor Council and affiliated unions purchased $11,200 worth of hams from Cascade Select Market in Castle Rock to donate, said Mike Bridges, building and trades council president.
