 Print View   

May 6, 2008 (FPRC) -- Tualatin, OR: After a few years of dwindling board membership, the Tualatin School House Food Pantry gained new life with the enlistment of seven new board members. The two remaining board members, Mike Shiffer and Linda Moholt actively recruited from the Pantry’s volunteer pool, the local community and the Tualatin Chamber of Commerce.

Currently located at the site of the old Tualatin Elementary School on Boones Ferry Road, it is projected that in July the property will be sold and the Pantry will have to move to a new undetermined location.

According to Moholt, “The Pantry is facing an emergency this summer with a potential eviction from our current location. Considering there were only three members of the board and one wasn’t returning, we had to think fast. We looked for people who were already committed to making a difference in our community and we asked them to join.”

The new members of the Board of Directors, in addition to Moholt and Shiffer, are: Mike Weaver, Cheryl Dorman, Matt Bratschi, Laura Spurrell, Ted Weitman, Shirley Johnson, Laura Hundtoft and Eileen Eakins. The officers of the board are Mike Shiffer, Linda Moholt, Laura Spurrell and Cheryl Dorman as president, vice president, secretary and treasurer, respectively.

“We have very big plans for the future and we are very excited to have such dedicated individuals to build the Tualatin School House Food Pantry into an even greater organization for our community,” said Shiffer.

The Tualatin School House Food Pantry works closely with the Oregon Food Bank and serves an average of 360 families per month, an increase of over 25 percent from last year. With more than 500 volunteer hours worked per month, it is made up entirely of volunteers and is supported by the entire community: faith, business, schools, social and civic organizations and individuals.
