Like many of you, we've recently received the latest government economic stimulus payment.

However, we count ourselves among the lucky ones who haven't lost employment or suffered economic harm, just inconvenienced by the coronavirus pandemic.

Because there are so many out there who are suffering more than us, we plan to pass our stimulus money on to one of the many local services that are helping those hardest hit by this year’s economic woes. Several of our friends plan to do the same, and perhaps you will also consider doing so.

Some suggestions: Community Connection, the Northeast Oregon Food Bank (they have to move their warehouse this year — and are supporting more folks than ever in Wallowa, Union and Baker counties!), Building Healthy Families or one of the many other organizations doing good work.
