Our 2020 Signature Project

NeighborImpact's FRESH to YOU  Fresh to You

The Fresh to You project brings a mobile food pantry of fresh food & staples in meal kits to low-income south county residents and La Pine Community Health Center clients who have diet-modifiable diseases such as Type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease & obesity.  Nutritional education will help recipients begin to view food as a type of medicine.

It is significant because it is…..

  • a collaboration between La Pine Community Health Care, the High Desert Food and Farm Alliance, NeighborImpact and other local groups.
  • has long-term impact by improving residents’ health as well as providing an immediate basic need.
  • brings a new service to the LaPine area as an expansion of NeighborImpact’s successful pilot mobile food pantry program last year in Prineville.  LaPine is NeighborImpact’s next rural area targeted to bring a mobile pantry due to limited accessibility to fresh food.

The mission of NeighborImpact is to support people and strengthen communities.

    Questions & Answers About the Power of 100+

    Q: What is the Power of 100+?
    A: 100+ members of the SRWC and community contribute $100 each and join together to make an impactful $10,000+ award to a local nonprofit serving a pressing need in south Deschutes County. This direct contribution program for a specific project enables Power of 100+ members to make a larger and more focused impact in the community. It supports local non-profits in introducing new services, or increasing/enhancing existing ones.

    Q: What is unique about the Power of 100+ Program?
    A: It is an adaptation of the successful 100 Women Who Care movement. 100 Women Who Care is a group-based philanthropy model where members choose the charity their collective contribution will support.   In this innovative model 100 people each donate $100 resulting in an impactful $10,000 donation to a local charity.

    Q: How is the Power of 100+ Project selected?
    A: We have adapted the 100 Women Who Care program to fit within the existing structure of the SRWC.  The SRWC Philanthropy Committee vets potential projects and sends two projects to the membership for a vote. Since the SRWC is the sponsor of the program, all members have a vote and a voice in selecting the signature project.

    Q: Why is SRWC doing this? We already raise a significant amount of money for charity.
    A: A 2017 survey of SRWC members showed interest in expanding our philanthropic impact in the community. The Power of 100+ accomplishes this by allowing us to identify and support a specific need in the community and give a larger reward.

    Q: Why should I join the Power of 100+?
    A: There are many ways we all give to the SRWC and to our community. The decision on whether to make a contribution is a personal one, therefore each member should decide if joining the Power of 100 is right for them. The Power of 100+ is a program you can choose to join, just as you join a Book Club or Hiking Group.

    Q: Do I have to join the SRWC to be a Power of 100+ member?                     
    A: No. Any member of the community can participate in the program.  Many do because they share the philosophy of there being power in groups of people supporting projects addressing community needs.  However, only SRWC members can vote on the signature projects.

    Q: Do I have to give $100? Will you accept smaller contributions?
    A: In order to join the Power of 100+, members must make a donation of $100 or larger. However, members wishing to make smaller contributions are welcome to donate to the Philanthropy Program which funds our traditional grant program.

    Q: Can I do installments for my $100 contribution?
    A: New this year, we are offering SRWC members the opportunity to make four $25 payments over the course of four months.  To participate in the installment program, please contact us at

    Q: Count me in!  How do I join?
    A: You can make your $100 donation online at SRWC Power of 100+; send a check to SRWC at P.O. Box 3334; or you can bring a check or cash to any Sunriver Women’s Club event.
