Grant helps kids and families

In December 2021, the Grande Ronde Hospital Foundation received a generous grant from the Roots & Wings Foundation. The $90,000 grant was awarded under the 2021 priorities guidelines of "Strong Start for Kids, Strong Communities, and Strong Minds."

Roots & Wings is a family foundation established in 2019 by Judy and Gordon Faulkner. Roots & Wings provides grants across the fields of health care, early childhood, basic needs and human rights. The Foundation supports nonprofit organizations that help low-income children and families reach their full potential through prevention, early intervention and in-depth programming that changes lives.

Grande Ronde Hospital Foundation Manager Patrick Flynn said the grant is a meeting of two visions.

"It is amazing when organizations have visions which create synergies such as this. To then combine efforts and resources to benefit local communities—it's why we're here!"

The Foundation and GRH have projects underway that will use the grant funds, with details to be announced soon.
