The past couple of weeks have seen the valley transform from its usual bustling self as citizens are urged to stay indoors, businesses shutter and confirmed cases of coronavirus continue to mount.

Amid all the doom and gloom, some community members are spearheading operations to help each other through these difficult times. Community fundraisers have been cropping up, putting donations directly towards helping Blaine County in its time of need.

The Blaine County Charitable Fund is one such new organization. A small but dedicated group of Wood River citizens has banded together to redirect money to those who need it most.
