In partnership with the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, MRG Foundation is proud to present The Chúush Fund, which accepts contributions from foundations and individuals to directly benefit the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs as they work to restore their access and infrastructure for clean water
On May 31, 2019 the Tribal Council of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs approved an emergency disaster declaration due to immediate health threats resulting from a 14” water main line break in the Shitike Creek. Because of public utilities capital maintenance deferment over the last few decades, today, months into rolling water outages and a boil water notice across Oregon’s largest reservation, there is still no relief in sight. “This is a worst case scenario,” said Warm Springs Chief Operating Officer Alyssa Macy.
Mudbone Solidarity Love Shares
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the deep inequities Black Oregonians have experienced for generations. In response to the harm done by racism and the oppression of Black people, Mudbone Grown has created Solidarity Love Shares for Black Families that provides 8 weeks of healthy and fresh food to Black families who need it.
Your support helps us:
- employ Black farmers for the growing season at a living wage ($20 an hour).
- deliver 8 weeks of vegetables, herbs and fruit to dozens of families.
- develop and train another generation of Black farmers.
