You are Making a Difference!
In just 48 hours over 200 Spokane area people have donated over $15,000. Project Share and U-help are each matching donations. This brings the total assistance amount so far to over $47,000!

The new partnership between Avista and the City is designed to increase direct financial support for those who need it most during the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order that has led to widespread closures of businesses and schools. The programs are working to raise money to help those in need.

Here’s how you can join in the generosity. Donate in any amount over the next six weeks. For every dollar donated by the community to help people with their utility bills, the City of Spokane and Avista will each match it. That means for every $1 donated, $2 more will go to support their neighbors.

Those who need help can contact SNAP at (509) 456-SNAP to request support.

More information on support that’s available for our community members and businesses can be found on the City’s web site.
Mayor's Update

On the Bright Side
A great example of #InlandStrong!
From our friends at Southwest Community Center:
"One of most unexpected positive results is how much cooperation the youth have given each other during school work time. We do two hours in the morning and an hour in the afternoon. During the normal school year we pick up the youth at the bus stop walk them across the park, have a snack, the do homework. During the "homework" time it's a constant battle to have them focus and do any school work for 15-20 minutes. So we are totally shocked at how great their attitudes have been about getting in and doing their homework and helping each other."
