Sept. 22: How SR 530 Mudslide donations were distributed
On the five month anniversary of the SR 530 Mudslide, United Way of Snohomish County and Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation have released a detailed report on how disaster recovery donations have been distributed.
Of the $4.56 million received by United Way and Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation, 69% has already been distributed. Most of it has been given to, or has been set aside to go to, families and individuals impacted by the mudslide. The balance has helped first responders, addressed economic development needs, supported youth programs and paid for disaster case managers who are working directly with families directly impacted by the mudslide to help them rebuild their lives.
It takes a village
In addition to our Disaster Recovery Fund, several other organizations—including the American Red Cross Snohomish County Chapter, Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation, Catholic Community Services, Coastal Community Bank, Greater Everett Community Foundation and The Salvation Army—are raising money to support the recovery and relief efforts.
How much have we raised so far? How much have we distributed?
