These funds will provide Latinx families in Jefferson County assistance with resources to address food insecurity brought on as a result of COVID-19’s economic impacts. Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) puts donated money to work in Oregon – more than $100 million in grants and scholarships support Oregonians annually.
At the recommendation of First Interstate Bank’s Redmond branch, FAN received two grants from the First Interstate Foundation. Driven by a vested interest in the health and strength of their communities, a $5,000 grant will directly help families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic by helping connect local families to basic needs including food, utility assistance, transportation, and rental assistance. A $2,500 grant will assist children and their families experiencing poverty in Redmond and will ensure access to food, clothing, rent relief, and more. Thank you, First Interstate Foundation!
