Peace: It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
"Yakima Valley Partners for Education, a collective impact initiative in Washington State, provides drive-through food distribution for the Yakama Nation Reservation and other residents of the Yakima Valley. We talked about this program with Lucy Smartlowit of Peacekeeper Society and Suzy Diaz of Heritage University about how and why they target food insecurity in order to improve outcomes for children."
Warm Springs Water Fund
The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs have been without consistent water access since 2018. A large portion of those living on the Reservation rely solely on bottled water and the need is great.
We have been making consistent water, food, and supply runs to the tribe since spring of 2020 and are currently working to ensure water reserves will be stocked through the summer and after. In the past 9 months we have brought 77 pallets or 22,176 gallons of water and will be making monthly runs until needs are met.
This fund will be a continuous source in support of and under the guidance of the Warm Springs Tribal Emergency Management Team. All funds will be used for the purchase and transportation of water and supplies as requested by the Warm Springs Tribal Emergency Management Team. Can you chip in $30 today, so we can purchase and transport water to the Warm Springs Community to ensure they have an additional source of water throughout the new year. Every dollar helps.
