Mohawk Community Resource Center seeks support from the community it serves
The years 2020-2022 have been a challenge for all the non-profit organizations across the state and Plumas County. The Mohawk Community Resource Center (MCRC) in Blairsden-Graeagle is no exception and is, in fact, trying to get back on its feet after some extremely trying times.
In the past, Plumas Rural Services provided financial support to MCRC, but due to the pandemic and the many fire disasters, they were no longer able to sustain their support. Additionally, all of the usual MCRC fundraisers had to be cancelled for two years due to the pandemic.
In the last year, the Graeagle Community Service District (GCSD) has stepped in to help fill the gap. The MCRC board has been committed and active in seeking ways to continue this great asset to the community and are now asking for your help.
Mohawk Community Resource Center provides a wide variety of services and activities to the community. This includes Senior Nutrition lunches once a week, various exercise classes such as Tai Chi, Line Dancing, and Pilates. There are also meditation, art and language classes, support groups, access to computer and wi-fi, printing and faxing tools, and a lending library filled with books, DVDs, jigsaw puzzles, and board games. Mohawk Community Resource Center also offers facility rental for meetings and events and serves as a social gathering place with many events during the year to bring the community together.
The Mohawk Community Resource Center board works diligently to raise funds to support the center and this year, the target is $26,000 to meet the center’s budget requirements.
MCRC realizes there are many great, local organizations and causes that are worthy of your time and money.
“We hope you will consider how you and your neighbors have directly benefitted from the center and become a sponsor, so that we can continue to provide, and even increase, the activities and resources that contribute to the vibrancy of our beautiful Mohawk Valley,” board members invite.
If you wish to help, you can mail the center a check at the address below or drop one off when they are open. Donors will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Any donation of time or money is welcomed and appreciated, and sponsors at three levels. The Pearl level is for donors in the range of $100-$249, the Ruby level is $250-$499 and the Diamond level is $500 and up. Donors will be recognized on an engraved plaque displayed in the center.
