Our community has come together in a big way to help our neighbors who have had to evacuate and have lost so much. This is an update from the United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley from Thursday morning.

Overnight, they accumulated enough donations to fill three pods, provided by GetSimpleBox.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Fairgrounds will no longer be able to accept donations there. Please bring your donations to United Way at 455 Bliler Ave. NE.
