PacWest Makes Thanksgiving Donation to Catholic Charities Portland Shelter

The Portland branch of PacWest Moving & Delivery donated Thanksgiving dinner to the Kenton Women’s Village (KWV). KWV is a Portland women’s shelter made up of 15 small houses occupied on a transitional basis. Its villagers receive assistance from Catholic Charities of Oregon as they take steps toward permanent housing.

The PacWest team prepared Thanksgiving dinner consisting of turkey, stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, gravy, and roasted carrots. The meal was delivered directly to the KWV location and handed off to the managers on duty. Thanksgiving dinner was served from the community kitchen with set up help from the PacWest team.

“We believe we have a duty to contribute to the communities where we do business,” said PacWest owner Joshua Enders. “Our company has the means to help those in need and we intend to do that. We’re honored to have the opportunity to provide Thanksgiving dinner to the special women of KWV.”

Kenton Women’s Village (KWV) was built in 2016 by a coalition of local architects, nonprofit organizations, and homeless advocates. The village has 20 sleeping pods similar to a small house constructed from shipping containers. Residents have access to a community kitchen, showers, personal storage, and water delivery and trash removal services.
