St. Charles Foundation recently granted the Family Access Network (FAN) $10,000 to connect children and families to essential resources in Deschutes and Crook counties. It only costs $100 to provide one child with vital FAN services for the entire school year. These funds will ensure that 100 disadvantaged children and their family members living in poverty, or experiencing homelessness, receive basic necessities such as: food, a safe place to sleep, seasonally appropriate clothing, health care, and much more.
Ever wondered what to do with an old car, truck, RV or boat? Thelma's Place, a nonprofit intergenerational day center offering quality adult day care for seniors, will gladly take it off your hands. In a most recent case, the tax deductible donation ended up not only blessing the program, but also a caregiver working at Country Side Living, the residential memory care community in which Thelma's Place is housed.
James Goyner has worked at Country Side Living since October 2018. He is a caregiver, working the night shift at the memory care community. James long struggled with reliable transportation to and from work. It wasn't until July 1, when Thelma's Place received a 2006 Ford Escape that James' burden would be lifted. James was able to make payment arrangements and purchase the car from Thelma's place, making it a win-win for both parties. As a nonprofit, Thelma's Place is grateful for the generous donations it receives, and is fortunate to experience its continued impact on those in need.
Contact Thelma's Place at 541-548-3049 for more information about how to make difference with a tax deductible vehicle donation.
