North Cascades Bank has committed $125,000 for a community matching funds campaign to enable Lighthouse Christian Ministries to fully fund its Ministry Center building project at 410 S. Columbia St. in Wenatchee.
“We are proud to participate in this important project,” said Scott Anderson, President and CEO of North Cascades Bank. “Lighthouse Ministries plays a vital role in supporting a multitude of services for people who are suffering from homelessness in our valley to help them achieve independence and dignity. Providing a larger space for the delivery of these essential services to those in need makes us a better community.”
“We are extremely grateful for North Cascades Bank’s contribution,” said Kyle Hendrickson, Lighthouse Ministries Board President. “Thousands of hungry homeless men, women and children will be able to receive a good meal here.”
Hendrickson continued, “Thousands will also find relief from terrible dental pain and treatment for urgent medical needs. With this generous gift, North Cascades Bank is encouraging the Wenatchee community to again step up in a big way to help Lighthouse get this important project across the finish line. We live in an amazingly supportive community, and I have no doubt they will rally and make this happen!”
North Cascades Bank’s funds and those raised through the matching campaign will allow the completion of the Lighthouse Ministry Center project at 410 S. Columbia St. in Wenatchee. The new Ministry Center will provide services to the homeless and those at risk of homelessness.
The building will house the Lighthouse Soup Kitchen, medical and dental clinic, food bank, furniture ministry, food distribution hub, auto mechanic ministry, and Lighthouse ministry offices.
