Time to step up for our neighbors hit by that landslide on 70th

Leslie Brown’s home, badly undermined – uninhabitable in present condition.

The bell is ringing and they’re passing the hat in Newport, throughout Lincoln County and everywhere else there’s a willing heart to help the now homeless families displaced by December’s big landslide on NE 70th in Newport. After many days of pounding rain, the ground under 7 homes began to give way and slump down into Schooner Creek Canyon.

What’s critical for these families are their need for temporary shelter (the Red Cross can only do so much) and for hiring Geotechs to inspect their homes to see if they can move back in. FEMA disaster funds are NOT available – “the disaster is not big enough.” And the city is legally prohibited from turning municipal funds over to private parties.

So it’s up to us – the community – to step in and prove we really do care about our neighbors and each other – that our donations, large or small, will do so much more for others than they could ever do for ourselves.

So here’s how to donate. There are two GO FUND ME accounts that have already been started up for two of the striken families.

* For Mary Gillian – Top Picture – Click here to donate to Mary.
* For Leslie Brown – Bottom picture – Click here to donate to Leslie.

Just to get a geologist out to help Leslie runs around six thousand dollars.

So let’s show the world what Lincoln County residents are made of. Donate what you can, as much as you can for these two families.
