Three years ago, Clackamas County lost a very loving and giving soul, Teri Gant. Her remarkable ability to give all she had towards helping those in need, is part of what initially inspired TCR Catering to begin, Catering for a Cause. In honor of Teri, and all the joy and love she gave, we at TCR Catering feel so blessed to be able to continue Catering for a Cause...
In 2005, the American Military Encouragement Network began as an outreach to help support those who have or are currently serving their country. Over the years they have provided much needed supplies and assistance to soldiers, airmen, marines, sailors and military families. Forming a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit to increase their ability to support, A.M.E.N. continues today to be a valuable source of not just necessities, but also of hope and encouragement.
In 2018, A.M.E.N. grew into a warehouse in Clackamas. It was not long after, Clackamas County established the Veteran Village nearby. With needs rising, the A.M.E.N. Mercantile was opened, an area dedicated to providing free food, clothing, bedding, toiletries, and misc. items to all active duty, Veterans, and their families.
As part of our commitment to giving back to those in need, and our privilege to continue in Teri’s honor, the first quarter of 2020 will be dedicated to Catering for a Cause, in thanks for all the love and joy spread to our community, through the A.M.E.N. Mercantile. TCR Catering promises to donate a portion of all proceeds from this quarter, to this wonderful nonprofit, benefiting our beloved brave, and their families.
