January 28, 2023
We gathered together for Bible Study with past General Minister and President Sharon Watkins, and Keynote Speaker Mikah Neff. The theme was Women We Don't Always Hear About and the focus was on issues of domestic violence.
Three Grants were made using the funds gathered
from the January 28 event
$500 through La Grande FCC, for cell phone and supplies for local shelter
$500 through Hood River Valley CC, for gas/gift cards through local shelter
$378 to Rafael House for needs of the shelter in Portland Oregon
These grants represent conversations with local shelters regarding their stated needs to assist women in moving away from domestic violence.
