Snoqualmie Tribe Donates $275,000 To Agencies Responding To Oso Slide
Leaders of the Snoqualmie Tribe announced it would donate $275,000 to six groups and agencies responding to last weekend's deadly mudslide in Oso.
Tribal elders announced donations of $50,000 to the Oso, Arlington and Darrington fire departments on Friday. They'll also contribute $50,000 apiece to the Red Cross and the Cascade Valley Hospital Relief Foundation, in addition to $25,000 to the Snohomish County Search & Rescue K-9 team.
"It wasn't hard to decide [to donate], it was hard to decide how much," said Carolyn Lubenau, vice chair of the Snoqualmie Tribal Council.
The gifts come after a public plea to large employers in the area from Snohomish County Fire District 21 Chief Travis Hots during Friday morning's press briefing.
On Thursday, coffee company Starbucks announced gifts of $50,000 to the Red Cross and $50,000 to the United Way of Snohomish County.
The Tulalip Tribe also gave $50,000 on Wednesday to the Cascade Valley Hospital Relief Foundation.
