Your donations help the Friends support public health services and initiatives which help our community members.


The money from your donated bottles and cans will go to the Nurses’ Purse, which is a discretionary fund that can be accessed by public health nurses at Coos Health & Wellness. The Nurses’ Purse fund helps families in need with essentials such as food, clothing, infant care, and payment of medical bills for the uninsured. The relatively small assistance from this fund can help a family overcome what seems to be an insurmountable obstacle to their health and wellbeing.
