Bonanza Cares, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission it is to Care for Our Community. We encourage our community to invest in each other by helping those in need. Bonanza Cares has a network of volunteers who perform services such as weekly senior meals, Produce Connection, transportation, visiting, yard work, or anything that is needed. We also accept household item donations that we store for families in need.
In addition to caring for our residents, Bonanza Cares has been working on revitalization in the Bonanza community. We have installed banners along the highway to show our support of our farmers and to welcome all those who visit or pass through. We offer a 100% matching grant to business owners to improve their storefronts. And now we are working on the idea of a community center.
Bonanza Cares is applying for a Ford Family Foundation grant to hire a consultant to complete a feasibility study on a community center. This report will answer questions such as, “Does the community want a center? Can we afford to build one? Where would it be? What would it look like? What features would it have?” And the most important question, “Can we keep it operating?” The Bonanza Cares board of directors will be touring the community centers in Chiloquin, Tulelake and Butte Valley to gather information from those who operate them and to help determine what features a Bonanza community center might have.
We are inviting anyone who wants to be involved in this process to join us. Please call us at 541-892-5537 or email email@example.com if you would like to be a part of this planning committee.
