Hello Life thanks the Honorable Frank L and the Arlene G Price Foundation for our most recent grant. This grant will allow us to continue to provide members of our community who struggle with eating disorders with equitable access to professional treatment and care. Support for our programs has never been more critical. We are very grateful for the support of the Price Foundation in our work to provide a free, fair, accessible, and dignified pathway to eating disorder recovery for all individuals in Cowlitz County.

Family grateful for the help of the chaplaincy
I offer the personal testimony of my family regarding the impact of the Cowlitz County chaplaincy, and more specifically Mario Gambaro.

After the unexpected death in early December 2021 of my husband, Randy Greeley, we were contacted by Mario who knew Randy from his many hours of volunteer work in Cowlitz County. Randy was a longtime resident of Cowlitz County and was a member of the Lower Columbia Amateur Radio Association, a volunteer for over 30 years with the Department of Emergency Management, a member of the Trailbreakers Jeep Club, and was involved in numerous other services. related events.
Mario understood Randy’s impact as a first responder and ensured his memorial reflected his service to the community. This wouldn’t have been possible without Mario’s connection to law enforcement and other first responders.
Our family has been fully supported by Chaplaincy, Mario, the Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Emergency Management. Mario walked us through what the curriculum should look like, the order of service, first responder involvement, and the proper honors associated with Randy’s military service. His knowledge and compassion in guiding us through this journey was immeasurable. Additionally, his connection to the church, his knowledge of a piper, his music suggestions, and his knowledge of the honor guard and flag customs were so valuable that we could never have done it without him.
In addition to the ceremony itself, the time of year was a huge challenge navigating between Christmas, New Years, COVID and inclement weather. Mario never wavered in his support of our family, showing up and even meeting us a few days after Christmas when we knew he had many other commitments.
Randy’s serve was magnificent and went off without a hitch and we think it was Mario’s involvement that made it so successful. We will never be able to thank him enough, as well as all the chaplaincy.
We will be forever grateful for Chaplaincy’s support during this difficult time.
