Mercury Moves Closer to Goal

The weather finally warmed up enough for staff to add the $60,000 received from the Oregon Community Foundation, $4,789 from Oregon’s Asset Forfeiture Fund allocated to Relief Nurseries, and more than $5,000 received from local community members. What an exciting time for the Ontario area!

Christmas Cards for Children

We received a Good Seed Project grant from DKB in 2014 and 2015. We are grateful our partnership extends beyond the initial award. Thanks, DKB!
