June 3, 2020 — Christmas in June, a local effort to assist in financially supporting area residents during the COVID-19 pandemic, began on Monday, June 1. The project was conceived and initiated by former pilot and active community member Sam Spayd (pictured above with Nicki Lorenz and Cherryholmes) and is focused on providing grants to those negatively impacted by the pandemic.
The program is asking community members who have the financial means to contribute to Christmas in June by donating at collection sites at Fred Meyer, BI-Mart and Grocery Outlet. Spayd is also looking for individuals to help at collection sites and with networking.
To contribute to or apply for aid, contact Spayd at 541-991-6139.
