I'm Gung Ho for Gung Ho! by Jack Kerfoot
Gung Ho Ministries is a Christian nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance for veterans with housing related emergencies. Tanya Hawkins, executive director of Gung-Ho was kind enough to educate me on the organization's efforts to assist veterans in Washington and Multnomah Counties.
Gung-Ho is a high-end resale shop, located in downtown Beaverton. Sales from the shop provide thousands of dollars every month to veterans for housing related emergencies, such as rent, utilities, etc. Churches and caseworkers screen and recommend candidates to Tanya. Gung Ho has kept hundreds of veterans of all ages off the streets over the past eight years.
Gung Ho first opened in 2011 in southwest Portland. In 2017, Gung Ho relocated to 4775 SW Main in Beaverton. Donated clothing and accessories are selected for the shop or sent to the Union Gospel Mission's thrift shop and women's shelter. Over the past eight years, Gung Ho Ministries have contributed almost a quarter million dollars to our local veterans.
As a Vietnam Veteran, I have a special place in my heart for all veterans. If I am fortunate enough to be elected to the Portland City Council in 2020, it will be my goal to establish a venue for all aid agencies to network and collaborate to help all people in need in the greater Portland area.
