May 22, 2024: Portland, OR – Hampton Lumber is pleased to announce a $250,000 donation to the Columbia Memorial Hospital (CMH) Expansion Project in Astoria, OR. This four-year capital improvement project will expand hospital service lines, attract new health care providers, and provide the latest technology to address community health needs. It will also increase resiliency and offer a safe refuge area in case of a natural disaster like an earthquake or tsunami.

“We’re so grateful for Hampton Lumber’s generous donations of cash and wood products for the BuildCMH Expansion Project,” said Mark Kujala, executive director of the CMH Foundation. “The support of our community and their help to build this amazing expanded hospital is what makes this project so special.”

Hampton Lumber has operated a sawmill in Warrenton, OR since 2010. Today, the company employs roughly 160 people in Clatsop County between the sawmill and a forestry office near Knappa, OR.

“Improved access to medical care is critically important to our employees, their families, and our neighbors,” said Lois Perdue, plant manager at Hampton’s Warrenton sawmill.  “Getting major construction projects like this over the finish line takes an entire community and I’m thrilled we’re able to support this important effort.”

Hampton’s contribution will include a combination of financial support and donations of wood products for construction and outdoor landscaping.
