Directors of the Pioneer Relief Nursery will host a fundraising luncheon in Hermiston Monday, Oct. 4, to explore support for more services to young families in the Hermiston area. The lunch program will start at noon at the New Hope Community Church at the south entrance to town.
Pioneer Relief Nursery started in Pendleton in 2008 to help families needing assistance in caring for their young children through parenting classes, therapeutic toddler and pre-kindergarten classrooms, planned respite care and home visits. The reason for the Monday event in Hermiston is to explore feasibility of basing nursery staff in Hermiston to better serve the area.
Mark Mulvihill, Umatilla-Morrow ESD director, and foremer assistant superintendent with the Hermiston School District, will be a speaker at the lunch.
