OSO EMERGENCY FUNDS
The recent tragedy in Oso has left many asking how they can help. Our friends at the Greater Everett Community Foundation have provided the following information.
The Community Foundation has opened an Emergency Fund to provide assistance for the communities impacted by the tragic mud slide on March 22, 2014. Consistent with the Community Foundation’s focus on sustainable solutions, the Emergency Fund will aid in long-term recovery and community rebuilding. This could include relief for displaced families and individuals, animal welfare, environmental needs, community clean-up, rebuilding and more. The Community Foundation will work in partnership with local government entities, nonprofits and other community organizations to identify the best way to provide support to assist the people and communities affected. Distributions will be overseen by a committee of community volunteers and foundation staff.
Credit card donations can be made online via our partner the Seattle Foundation or checks can be mailed to the Greater Everett Community Foundation, PO Box 5549, Everett WA 98206.
