Portland Rescue Mission says a huge “thank you” to EPIC Imaging, a local diagnostic imaging facility giving back to our community.
For the second year in a row, employees of EPIC Imaging treated the women and children of Shepherd’s Door to a beautiful Valentine’s Day dinner. Tim Lang, Director of Ancillary Services, organized the dinner. With the help of Pacific Seafood Company, who donated steak and salmon for dinner, EPIC Imaging employees exemplified Project EPIC’s motto, “Ordinary people coming together can do extraordinary things.”
Many of the women and children in our recovery program come from difficult relationship and home situations. The gift of a special Valentines dinner helps remind them that they are valued and loved. Teri, a current resident of Shepherd’s Door and participant of the New Life Recovery Program, says, “This was one of the best dinners I’ve had in years, and to be treated with such respect was a blessing.”
EPIC Imaging regularly volunteers Shepherd’s Door, our women and children’s recovery ministry, as part of their “Project EPIC” community outreach program. “We were looking for somewhere specific to our immediate Portland community, an opportunity to work together in teams and provide time and materials,” says Cindy Johnson, who works in Human Resources at EPIC Imaging, regularly volunteers as a career coach and helps serve dinner at Shepherd’s Door.
Thank you, EPIC Imaging, for all that you do to help us give hope to hurting people in need.
