New CDC Recommendations: The  CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies), especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Visit their site to learn how to sew your own mask.  You  can get more details on mask usage from our County Public Health Officer.

Food and Product Donations: We accept food and product donations between 8am and noon, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in Hood River.  Please email fishwebguru@gmail.com if the donation is very large so we have folks on hand to help.  The community restaurants and food suppliers have truly helped us help others.  Thank you!

Volunteers: We have plenty of volunteers at this time, and don't need additional volunteer help.  We'll let everyone know if this changes. If you want to help and can afford to donate funds, please use our PayPal links.

Daily Public Service Announcement: Dr. Chris Van Tilburg, the county Public Health Officer, provides a daily update on the situation in Hood River County.
