Thanks to Debra Knopf, Executive Director at Kiawanda Community Center (KCC), for reaching out to Fencepost readers. Her email explains that KCC is a local nonprofit that has historically been self-supporting through space rental and event hosting along with generous donations from the community. Because KCC was forced to close in March (due to social distancing requirements related to COVID 19), expected revenue has been lost. The center was fortunate to receive a grant from a Payroll Protection Progam, and the Board has taken aggressive steps to reduce costs, but financial support is needed for KCC to reopen when the crisis is over. Consider donation on their Facebook page or at https://www.kiawanda.com/support-kcc/ Checks, made payable to Kiawanda Community Center can be mailed to P.O. Box 1111, Pacific City, OR 97135.
