Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The North Tillamook County Business Relief Campaign is excited to announce the receipt of a $30,000 grant from Oregon Community Foundation! These funds are available to businesses in Manzanita, Nehalem, Wheeler or the immediate rural area. The campaign committee is especially interested in hearing from people who are self-employed and any business which is struggling to survive. The committee often hears, “oh, someone needs it more than I do” and encourages anyone who has said that to reconsider. If help is truly needed, it is offered.
To date over 50 local businesses have received funds from the campaign totaling $57,000, all from donations from 90 individuals. The committee is awed by and truly grateful for the generosity of our community.
All small businesses and independent contractors are encouraged to apply! The simple application can be found on the Fulcrum Community Resources website, www.fulcrumresources.org by clicking on “North County Business Relief Campaign” and scrolling to the bottom of the page and at www.exploremanzanita.com. Click on the donate tab. Or send an email to email@example.com to request one.
