The following is statement from the 107IST board.
During this unprecedented time, many of us have seen our lives — and the lives of those we care about — markedly impacted. Like many other nonprofits, the 107IST organization has felt a substantial impact as well. Nevertheless, our organization continues to think of ways we can support others in our community.
As you've seen, the 107IST recently launched an effort to manufacture masks for our members and the community. This has been wildly successful, resulting in more than 4,700 masks for donation as of this post.
But there's more we can do.
Last night, the 107IST board approved a budget that will allocate $20,000 for grants for our community partners, with the ability to grant additional money should the financial situation improve. This money is a combination of saving on expenses, a reallocation of our current funds, and a redirection of other donations.
Stay tuned in the next few weeks for more information, as well as how you can help.
We’re all in this together. Team. Town. Timbers Army and Rose City Riveters.
