It is available to be reserved for private parties or public events. Halsey Residents pay half price, and there are discounts for non-profits. There are also periodic free City sponsored events that are open to the public. The City is looking for more ways to use the Community Center to benefit the residents of Halsey.

Sharing Hands Food
The Giving Center in the Halsey Community Center is becoming a drop off location for Sharing Hands. Please bring canned or packaged non-perishable foods to fill the bin!Each month, Sharing Hands distributes over 150 baskets of food as part of the Oregon Food Bank system to low income families in the Central LInn community. Christmas Greeters distribute over 150 Christmas Dinner baskets and over 350 presents to children and seniors. During the school year, the PackSnack program distributes healthy snacks to Central Linn Students for the weekends. Sharing Hands also operates the Thrift Store, the Learning Tree Pre-School, and the Parents and Pals program.As the weather gets colder, low income families need more help. It’s a great time of year to check your pantry for non-perishable food you can share. Please help us support Sharing Hands, as they help support those who need it most.
Eyeglass Drop Off
In the corner of the Community Center, there is a bright yellow bin for recycling old pairs of eyeglasses and hearing aids. The eyeglasses will be picked up by the Central Linn Lions club. They then get sent to Salem and cleaned, repaired if necessary, measured and labeled with the prescription, and can then be dispensed to someone who cannot afford glasses.
