Non-profit of the Year
The Vina Moses Center was honored with the Corvallis Chamber's non-profit of the year award at this years' Celebrate Corvallis. Vina Moses was one of the early recipients of the Benton County Citizens' of the Year in 1955. The Vina Moses Center will be celebrating 100 years of service in 2018.
We have already begun preparations for our School Program, August 23 - 26. As always, we need children's sizes 8-14 for girls and boys. Donations of school supplies are also needed. Your contributions made it possible for us to help 900 children prepare for school last year. Sponsoring a child will remain at $50.00 this year. The Center makes many changes during the week of the School Program so we can use some "muscle" on Monday and Tuesday August 21-22.
Please call 541-753-1420 for times volunteers are needed. Most importantly, thank you for your continued support of all our programs throughout the year.

We celebrated our volunteers this year at our luncheon May 25, 2017. We were unable to celebrate last year so we had two volunteers to honor with Volunteer of the Year. Jim Wohlwend (2015) has been volunteering with our FISH program for over 20 years.
George Abele has been with Vina Moses since the early 1990's. We are certainly blessed with such dedicated and hardworking volunteers!
We serve 900 children in our annual School Program, that's a lot of pencils. This year we are in need of the following:
- Color Pencils
- Theme Books (college rule)
- Children's Clothing
- Socks and Underwear
- Cash Donations for Shoes
Sponsor a Child
Our goal is to help all the children requesting assistance, but our budget is limited. You can help by sponsoring one or more children. The cost is $50.00 per child.
Your donation is greatly appreciated and tax deductible. If you would like more information about the program or other ways to help please contact us at 541-753-1420.
