Donating To Junction City Local Aid

Junction City Local Aid relies entirely on donations from the community to fund our operations.

Financial Donations & Capital Campaign

Since we receive no government funding, we appreciate financial donations for general operations. We are also raising capital funds to pay the remaining mortgage on our spacious facility at 210 E. 6th Street.

Food Items

We are glad to receive donations of non-perishable foods. Bring them by our pantry during business hours. Please remember we cannot accept opened packages, food past its sell-by date, and home-canned items.

Clothing & Household

Gently used and clean donated clothing and linens are made available to all of our clients. Unfortunately, we cannot accept other household goods, furniture items, books, or appliances because of our limited storage space.

Non-Food Programs

We offer energy assistance, propane assistance, prescription and over-the counter medicine assistance, as well as bus passes for necessary appointments. We welcome financial contributions to support these programs.

Junction City Local Aid began as a local community chest in 1945. In 2000, we became a community based 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization. We currently operate with the efforts of many volunteers, two part-time staff, and Executive Director Kori Rodley. The organization is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

JCLA provides basic needs assistance to people living in the Junction City School District and the Junction City area of rural Lane County. This includes food, utility and energy assistance, prescription/medical assistance, transportation assistance, clothing, and serves as a referral source for area resources.

We moved into our new location at 210 6th Street in April of 2013 after raising the funds to purchase the 11,000 square foot building. Due to the generosity of the previous owners, we were able to move in and have enough space to rent offices to other non-profit organizations such as Womenspace and Looking Glass Youth Services..
