Goodwill Industries supports nonprofits

While many know Goodwill as an organization that offers job programs, beyond that core mission the nonprofit also gives to area nonprofits and agencies. This year, Goodwill Industries of the Columbia Willamette’s (GICW) charitable arm has given more than $128,000 to 20-plus agencies such as Transitional Youth as well as area food programs, like Clatsop Emergency Food Bank, Mid-Columbia Community Action Council in The Dalles, Oregon Food Bank, Lincoln City Food Pantry, Clark County Food Bank and the Union Gospel Mission.

Freebridge begins brewing in TD

Freebridge is set to span the beer production gap in the gorge. Steve and Laurie Light took over the historic Mint building and plan to open Freebridge Brewery to the public on Jan. 15. “This has been a long time coming,” Steve said, “People around here talk about how this town of 17,000 has had no brewery, while Hood River, a smaller community, has five. People here in The Dalles also want good, local beer.”
