FISH – Friends in Service to Humanity
Locally, FISH (Friends in Service to humanity) is a group of people who shown their concern for their neighbors through concrete actions. While there are FISH groups in many U.S. cities, each group operates independently. FISH is 100% volunteer based with no paid staff.
You can contact FISH at (541) 689-9750 or by mail at:
P.O. Box 2412
Eugene, OR 97402
In in over 45 years plus of existence locally, FISH has supplied several hundred thousand meals and have provided many thousands of dollars in prescription assistance.
- Emergency food aid
- Prescription drug assistance
And, in the cases where FISH cannot help, they connect those in need with other organizations that can provide longer term assistance. There is never a charge to the clients. FISH provides immediate, limited, short-term help to individuals and families who cannot get assistance quickly from other sources.
FISH always needs volunteers and donations of food and money.
You can help by volunteering, filling the FISH box at Central with food, or by donating on the FISH Sundays during worship or through our church office.
