Grant will buy food box items
The South Douglas Food Bank in Riddle wishes to thank the Three Rivers Foundation, a charitable organization of the Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians, for its generous $7,000 grant recently awarded to our organization.
This donation will help us purchase a healthy variety of essential food items to distribute to needy families. Food insecurity remains a significant problem in Douglas County. We are grateful for the support of the Tribal Foundation so that we can feed hungry families. Our 40 volunteers distributed more than 4,200 food boxes last year providing food for 16,000 people in rural communities of southern Douglas County.
Thank you, Three Rivers Foundation, for helping support the needs of children and families in our local communities.

Cobb Children’s Learning Center would like to thank Plum Creek Foundation for its Challenge grant of $5,000 for our Natural Playscape project at Cobb Children’s Learning Center.
Every dollar donated from parents, businesses and community members towards the playscape during the next year will be matched, up to $5,000, by Plum Creek. Students from ages 3 through eighth grade will use the new playscape.
Most of our current playground area is asphalt, but the playscape will be an outdoor play environment that’s alive and green. It will include a climbing wall, social swing, water pump and creek bed, human sun dial, a fort building zone, picking garden and more.
Thank you, Plum Creek Foundation, for investing in the children of Douglas County.
