Local Food Banks

We regularly collect needed food items, diapers, other paper products to supply the local food banks.

Children for Change

Kids collect spare change during worship for a worthy project.  This time the children of Smyrna are raising
funds to purchase an Ark full of animals from Heifer Project International to help families raise (and share) farm animals to help support their families, and their neighbors’ families.

Love Inc

Smyrna donates monthly to the Clackamas County Love Inc in Canby that helps coordinate volunteer help with local services to those in need. 

Serrv

Serrv is a nonprofit, fair trade organization dedicated to lifting disadvantaged artisans, farmers, and their families out of poverty.  Smyrna Stitch Club supports Serrv by providing Serrv catalogs and managing orders


 SERRV originally stood for "Sales Exchange for Refugee Rehabilitation and Vocation", but their mission and work expanded greatly and now Serrv as a word on its own. 

KIVA

Smyrna has a Kiva team of 27 people which loans small amounts of money to small projects for individuals and groups in developing countries.   One is able to select a person or group and make a small loan ($25 or more) to help them reach their goal.  When it is paid back, you can relend it to someone else.


Since 2009, the Smyrna Kiva Lending Team has made 221 loans totaling $5,825.
