JOHN DAY — Old West Federal Credit Union, in partnership with the Fairgrounds Relief Effort, has set up an account where people can donate funds that will directly benefit Grant County residents who have been affected by the Canyon Creek Complex fire.

The deposit account at Old West is titled “Community Fire Relief Fund.” Forms are available where people can state if they would like their donation to go toward a specific person, family or agency, or to a general fund administered by Old West.

Donations may be made in person at an Old West branch or by mail to Old West Federal Credit Union, 650 W. Main St., John Day, OR 97845.

Old West is administering this account at no charge and will account for all monetary funds it receives to ensure donated funds are used efficiently and effectively.

The fund is a growing collaboration of concerned community individuals, partners and agencies whose sole goal is to provide relief to victims quickly.
