Long-Term Recovery Effort
A multitude of generous individuals and organizations have come together to assist and help unite the residents of Malden and Pine City in the aftermath of the Babb Road Fire on September 7, 2020. In the wake of the destructive path that the wildfire left behind, the community is coming together to rebuild.
Contact us if you have questions about the recovery effort. Email us if you would like to meet with a Disaster Case Manager (DCM). That will put you in touch with Dave Reynolds, our Lead DCM. He can also be reached by phone at 509-216-2611.

The DCMs and others represent community members at the weekly Unmet Needs Roundtable, to provide gap funding and other assistance.
