Agency and Other Non-Profit Relationships

“We couldn’t do what we do without Birch.” ~Helene W., Crossroads Food Bank

Birch Community Services partners with over 70 nonprofits, churches, and other agencies that are serving those in need in the Northwest.  These agencies include homeless shelters, food pantries, domestic violence shelters, and substance abuse centers. Some of these agencies serve clientele as far away as the Oregon coast and the Cascades mountain town of Welches. These agencies regularly serve up to 15,000 individuals with the food BCS provides.

Agencies pay a service fee of $150 and shop once a week, receiving 2,000-10,000 pounds of food and clothing each week. Due to the nature of our donations, BCS is unable to take specific orders from agencies but there will always be a wide variety of items available.

Birch also has reciprocal partnerships with agencies, where we both give and receive products to/from other nonprofits to work together to maximize the reach and variety we all offer our clientele.
