|The Keady Center
Broadway & Keady Streets in Waldport
|(Located 2 Blocks North of Ray's Food
Place off Hwy 34)
| The building was the home of
the Seventh Day Adventist Church of Waldport from the early 1950's until
2008. The congregation shared their Saturday meeting room with an activity
called the Waldport Community Service Center. Church members still run a
clothing collection and giveaway program benefitting local folks needing
clothes, shoes, bedding, towels, kitchen utensils and such. This is a free
program with no questions and no gimmicks. The program also reaches out to
drug rehabilitation groups, shelters, Samaritan Communities Hospital and
Angell Job Corp.
To further serve the community, the church offered this same space to Food
Share of Lincoln County providing a Food Pantry outlet for south county.
Through many years, the congregation saved funds to purchase property and
build a new church facility. They moved into their new home in 2008.
| Working with South Lincoln
Resources resulted in a plan allowing the clothing program and the food
pantry to remain in the old church building on Keady Street. These two
services still share the same space and South Lincoln Resources moved its
furniture, appliances and medical equipment programs into the into the
sanctuary and classrooms. SLR and Food Share pay utilities and a building
maintenance fund allowing the church to retain ownership of the property.
