Whatcom Community Foundation gives grants to local Red Cross

The Mt. Baker Chapter of the American Red Cross has received two grants, both of which will benefit local Red Cross disaster relief efforts.

The Iris Fund of the Whatcom Community Foundation provided a $5,000 grant and the Celedo Fund of the Whatcom Community Foundation provided a grant of $500. 

“These funds are especially critical now with the increase in home fires that occurs during the winter,” says Marinda Peugh, Financial Development Director for the Mt. Baker Chapter. “Over the past four years the Whatcom Community Foundation has donated nearly $30,000 to support the critical services the Chapter provides to the residents of Whatcom County. We deeply appreciate the Whatcom Community Foundation’s generosity and community spirit.”
