COVID 19  Nonprofit Fund

SRWC leaders knew that local nonprofits were going to need our support more than ever if they were going to meet the demand for essential services in south Deschutes County during this difficult time of the coronavirus pandemic. With this in mind, the COVID- 19 Nonprofit  Fund was born. Since the beginning of April, the COVID-19 Nonprofit Fund has disbursed $36,000 to agencies serving south Deschutes County.

Who is Receiving Assistance from this Fund?

  • La Pine Community Kitchen ($13,000) to support to-go meals and food boxes for seniors, veterans and families.
  • Habitat for Humanity of La Pine Sunriver ($5,000) to  support mortgage assistance and safety measures for volunteers.
  • Council on Aging ($6,000) to support food programs – Meals on Wheels and Community Grab N Go Meals at the La Pine Senior Activity Center.
  • MountainStar Family Relief Nursery ($3,000) to support their child abuse prevention programs in La Pine for 15 high risk families for four months.
  • NeighborImpact ($3,000) to support utility assistance for heat, water, sewer, garbage and even cell phones, as  phones can enable connection to jobs and other services.
  • La Pine Senior Activity Center ($2,500) to support Community Grab N Go Meals for seniors.
  • La Pine Community Health Center ($2,500) to support prescription medications  and health  services for underinsured or uninsured  families and seniors.
    • The La Pine Parks and Recreation ($1,000) to support child development with summer weekly activity kits for kids.

    Together We're Making a Difference

    The SRWC was recognized by the Bend Bulletin Editor as a Beacon for “taking it up a notch” when the pandemic hit and supporting the community. In her interview with the Bend Bulletin Editor, Sharri Dempsey, Manager for the La Pine Community Kitchen, shared what the assistance has meant to her nonprofit. “They have saved our kitchen; I’m going to start with that,” said Dempsey. “They have shared with us … their COVID-19 emergency funds they have raised. Without that, we would not have been able to continue serving meals here.”

    How Can You Help?

    There is still time to join SRWC members, community members, groups, businesses and organizations in this group fundraising effort.
