It has been a bit of a rough Summer! But we are trying to power forward; heat and unhealthy air quality conditions have put a damper and much of our fundraising. We had a couple setbacks including thieves and vandals messing with our company truck and our member's and volunteer's personal vehicles. But despite all that we have put in an application for a home base office location so that we can continue our efforts to help others!
We were also picked to receive a grant for gift cards to go to Dixie Fire Survivors and will be stepping in to help those fire survivors when we can. Sadly some are 2 and 3 time fire survivors; one of which had moved to Greenville after losing their home in Berry Creek, only to lose another! Is this just the new normal???
We hope that we get an opportunity to receive a grant that we can use for our own community but at this time there re none. But maybe the media attention will help us in future endeavors!
