holiday funding partnership

Holiday Funding Partnership

The Wild Rivers Community Foundation hosts an annual Holiday Partnership to assist our community with raising resources over the holidays for those in need. Organizations in Del Norte and Curry County, who help provide emergency supplies, food, winter clothing, hygiene products and gifts to children and adults in our region during the upcoming holiday season are encouraged to link with each other during this program. The funds are made possible through the generous donations from regional funders in Oregon and California who know that the holiday season is a wonderful time to give to the community.
