O’Connell Youth Ranch: Washer Woes to Washer Wins!

Sometimes supporting the simplest needs can lead to the greatest joys!  DCCF was pleased to provide a Community Grant to the O’Connell Youth Ranch to purchase new washers, dryers, and a generator for the facility. 

From their 2017 September Community Grant report, “Our success resulted in daily laundry being done. Our youth are responsible for their own laundry and thoroughly enjoyed using the new machines–with simpler ‘knobs’ and choices.  The generator at the pump house allowed us to be able to continue having water for all purposes for our houses during power outages.”
