The Methow Valley Interpretive Center in Twisp has established a Fire Relief Fund for those affected by the Cold Spring Fire in central Okanogan County.
On the Colville Reservation the fire “burned more than acreage and homes, they consumed precious evidence of the cultural richness of our Methow tribal people. The fire’s destruction also has put Methow elders at risk for their health, livelihood and capacity to pass on their language, traditions and skills,” according to an Interpretive Center press release.
Donations can be made on Paypal, or checks can be sent to P.O. Box 771, Twisp, WA 98856, indicating that they are for the Fire Relief Fund.
All of the donations will go directly to families in need, according to the press release. For information, call (509) 919-0686 or email email@example.com.
• The Community Foundation of NCW has reopened its NCW Fire Relief Fund and is accepting donations to support fire relief and recovery efforts in Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties. Minimum donation is $10 and 100% of the funds will help individuals and families impacted by wildfire in North Central Washington.
The foundation will be working with nonprofit, governmental and faith-based partners across the region who provide direct services and resources to those who have lost homes, structures, or have essential needs. For more information or to donate, visit http://www.cfncw.org/ncwfirerelieffund.
