Donor will match up to $100,000 for Indian Valley Strong/Sierra Institute

   End of December is the time for giving back, and if anyone out there is uncertain as to where the need is locally, look no further than the Sierra Institute’s Indian Valley Strong campaign.

   An anonymous donor has agreed to match any donations up to $100,000 until January 14, 2022.

   Since the Dixie Fire, Sierra Institute has provided a constant presence and taken a progressive approach to getting Indian Valley back on its feet.

   “Launching the Indian Valley Strong campaign, operating a unique youth stewardship program, and developing a wood products campus are just a few of the many ways Sierra Institute is working to invest in landscape restoration, build vibrant rural communities, and cultivate young stewards,” said Sierra Institute spokespeople.

   In donating to the non-profit organization, donors can specifically earmark funds to go to Indian Valley Strong, youth stewardship, or the organization in general.

   The Indian Valley Strong campaign supports the rebuilding of homes and businesses in Indian Valley and is providing critical relief to those most affected by the Dixie Fire. To date, the relief fund has received $255,538. The support funds have gone to investing in local businesses, supporting the Rebuild Greenville Resource Center, and providing food and essentials.
