Local Tribe Donates to aid Victims of the Philippines Typhoon and Midwest Tornado Outbreak

In keeping with their commitment to philanthropy, the Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community, have donated a combined $50,000 to the American Red Cross relief effort directed to the areas of the Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan as well as those effected by the recent outbreak of tornados in the U.S. Midwest.

In a brief statement by the Tribal Chairman, Wayne Mitchum Jr., “The Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community embody a sense of community and charity and strive to be good neighbors to all. Great organizations such as the Red Cross provide much needed assistance during devastating events such as the ones taking place in the Philippines and the Midwest. We, as a People, have the opportunity to help the less fortunate in this time of need, to not only be good local neighbors, but be helpful to the Community at large. The Colusa Indian Community sends their sincerest thoughts and best wishes during these times.”

As they have in the past, for local and regional causes, the Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community have dedicated charitable resources to aid those in times of need. The Tribe, located 68 miles North of Sacramento near the City of Colusa, CA, has long been known for their charitable devotion to local communities and has now extended donations to aid those in other parts of the country as well as those in need abroad.

Representatives from the American Red Cross, CEO of the Northeastern California Chapter, Martha Griese and CEO of the Capital Region Chapter Kathleen Weis, will meet Chairman Mitchum at the Colusa Indian Community’s Cachil Dehe Village Complex to receive the Tribe’s donations on Wednesday, December 4th, 2013 at 11:00am.

This is a lovely gift from the Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians and we are honored to receive it on behalf of those impacted by these disasters,” said Weis. “Typhoon Haiyan and the recent Midwest storms devastated communities and the affects will be felt for months and years to come. It is generosity like we see here today which allows the Red Cross to provide care, comfort, and relief to those affected by disaster around the world to help them and their communities get back on their feet.”

The Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community have contributed over $2,000,000 in charitable donations and aid over the last 10 years.

The Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians of the Colusa Indian Community is a federally recognized Tribe located in the County of Colusa, California. Over the years, the Colusa Indian Community has spent much time creating and fostering Community relations as well as assisting the vast number of local communities with the Tribe’s Charitable Contributions Program that helps local youth organizations, schools, county programs, and other charitable organizations with their causes. As a sovereign nation, the Tribal Government promotes diversification in their business ventures and thus currently owns and operates 11 different businesses such as a medical, dental, and dialysis center, a wellness center, and a nationally recognized early learning center among others. The Tribe is also currently a large rice farmer in Colusa County and continues to diversify their economy to enhance their way of life.
