Our partners at PGE Foundation have supported us in the past with grant funds to rehabilitate Cipriano Ferrel Education Center, our largest community education space that serves hundreds of families a year in Woodburn with educational, health, leadership, and cultural services. The Education Center, in partnership with the Woodburn School District, is currently serving as a food and resource distribution hub to support residents who are facing food insecurities or other concerns relating to COVID-19. We are supporting residents with information, resources, food, warm meals, and access to financial assistance.
Recently, PGE issued a moratorium on electricity bills for all commercial and residential users. They were one of the first organizations that provided information to residents in several languages, including Spanish. This gesture makes a big difference during this time when 30-50% of our residents in properties are facing job reductions or losses.
