NW Container Services donated a 20-foot shipping container to the Linnton Community Center’s Emergency Food bank. The container will be used for storing dry goods and nonperishable items. Extra storage will pave the way for evening distribution greatly increasing access to this critical service. The container also opens up space inside the food bank allowing for a more comfortable and welcoming experience. Thank you NW Container Services for facilitating this donation and helping us to feed our areas most vulnerable families and individuals.
My wife Margaret & I attend the senior luncheons at the Linnton Community Center. I was born in Linnton. I lived in a home that was torn out when they widened the highway in 1962. We love the Linnton Community Center and all the memories. We also love being able to come back and reconnect with old childhood friends. Some of them we haven’t seen for years.
I have a five year old and an eight year old. I was living in my car with all of my possessions when I first came to Linnton. . Not only did Linnton Community Center help me find housing, they took care of my children as I tried to improve my life. They never looked down on me. The Linnton Community Center was there with clothes and food and even Christmas presents for my children. I am now with a man I love very much and have a new baby. The Center is still there for me and my children.
As a single mom with four children Linnton Community Center provided a place for my children to be before and after school when I couldn’t afford to pay and wasn’t able to get help. I would have lost my job had they not opened their doors and hearts to me and my children.

Linnton Community Center has been the center of the Linnton community for decades. It has long provided daycare and after school programs to the area’s children, including myself, and been an anchor for young adults and senior citizens. The center is the heart and soul of Linnton and it is my hope that it will continue for decades to come. With thoughts of what the center has provided me and my family over time, and the ever continuing needs of the community I contacted the center a few years …

I was nine years old when I first came to the Linnton. I remember all the fun we had with the games and swings. I loved the roller skating and the nice people at the Linnton Community Center. I first learned to dance at the community center. I attend the senior luncheons at the community center whenever I feel well enough. I love to see my old friends. I was queen of the old Linnton School in the Rose Festival. There are so many memories here.
