Battle Ground Adventist Community Services (BG-ACS) has been a part of this community since the 1930’s when it began as the Dorcas Society. It was a fixture on Main Street in downtown Battle Ground for five decades before locating to its present location at Center Point in December 2006. With over 80 years of service to local communities, BG-ACS has received recognition and gratitude from government agencies, the community and its satisfied clientele members. All of BG-ACS’s services are volunteer-based and dependent on contributions and donations.
Each month volunteers distribute clothing, food and time to make a difference in the lives of our fellow citizens. Just during the month of February, BG-ACS distributed over 13,849 pounds of food valued at $22,898.00. And over 44 volunteers worked over 852 hours in supporting the food bank and clothing closet this month. Can you imagine how many hours are spent in volunteer time each year?
Clothing given to needy families numbered 3500 articles of clothing just in the month of February alone. The food bank and clothing closet welcomes your time and resources to meet the needs of those in our own neighborhoods. Thank you for your continued support.
