PRESCOTT -- The Vista Hermosa Foundation committed $400,000 to four separate organizations providing disaster relief efforts in Haiti.
The foundation is providing $150,000 to World Vision to distribute family survival kits; $150,000 to Food for the Poor to distribute food and water and $50,000 each to Beyond Borders and Haiti Partners to support local organizations working in the most needy communities.
As a way to connect the local community and children to this relief effort, the Vista Hermosa Foundation, through its Young Givers Program, will match any funds intended for World Vision, Food for the Poor, Beyond Borders and Haiti Partners. These funds must be raised by youths living in the Walla Walla and Tri-Cities areas.
Interested youths can contact the foundation for more information at 509-969-6601.
The Vista Hermosa Foundation was started in 1988 by the Broetje family. The foundation uses profits generated from Broetje Orchards to serve children and under-served communities, at home and around the world.
Broetje Orchards and Vista Hermosa Foundation offices are located on Fishhook Park Road off State Route 124.
