Giving immediate help to people in need
FISH of Cowlitz County helps people in ways that might seem insignificant, but to a families in crisis a box of food, a prescription medication, a pair of work boots, or treatment of an infected tooth are lifelines through a difficult time.
Clients helped by FISH know how vital caring aid can be during hard times. Many, like the woman whose card you see here, still remember our help years after they are back on their feet– four years after first receiving food from our volunteers she took the time to send us a note with an enclosed donation to help others in need.
What is this outfit with the odd name that touches people so deeply?
