Snoqualmie Indian Tribe Donates $275,000 to Landslide Relief

The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe has donated $275,000 to landslide relief efforts, giving $50,000 each to the Darrington, Arlington and Oso fire departments, as well as to the Red Cross, Cascade Valley Relief Foundation and $25,000 to K-9 relief.

Snoqualmie officials were inspired to donate after tribal members helping in the search efforts spoke of how wrenching the work was, the tribe’s vice-chair, Bob DeLosAngeles, told King5 News. They announced the donation at a press briefing on Friday March 28. The Snoqualmie are among several tribes that have donated money to assist in the crisis, including the Stillaguamish, the Sauk-Suiattle and the Tulalip tribes.
