Gold Beach resident Reneé Brooks was recently appointed to the Wild Rivers Community Foundation Board of Directors.

The Wild Rivers Community Foundation’s mission is to inspire people and communities by facilitating dialogue and encouraging charitable giving to support the region now and forever.  The foundation serves Curry and Del Norte counties.

“This was a great opportunity to become involved with an organization that focuses on providing communities with the support they need to solve their own problems while linking them to resources in their area,” Brooks said.  

“The Wild Rivers Community Foundation looks at each community as having individual needs, but also works to build on the commonalities shared between each community in the Wild Rivers Region,” she said.

Brooks is Administrative Coordinator for Curry Health Network and serves on the Curry County Commission on Children and Families, Curry County Drug Free Coalition, Curry County Human Services Advisory Committee, Special Transportation Fund Advisory Board and the Local Public Safety Coordinating Council.  Reneé is also a Port Orford Rotarian.

Brooks has experience in nonprofit organizations at the board level and was the executive director of South Coast Independent Living Services. She is a business woman and is an active member of the Gold Beach Chamber of Commerce. In addition, she is an international board certified lactation consultant and a certified birth assistant for Curry General Hospital.

She lived for one year in Costa Rica where she worked with a small hospital providing education and consultation to new mothers. As a Port Orford Rotarian, she and her club are currently working with the Curry Health Network on an international project to purchase pediatric medical equipment for that same Costa Rican hospital.

  • 'Yes' camp takes slim lead in Greek bailout referendum poll
    Supporters of Greece's bailout terms have taken a wafer-thin lead over the "No" vote backed by the leftist government, 48 hours before a referendum that may determine the country's future in the euro zone, a poll showed. It could also determine whether Greece becomes the first country to crash out of the 19-nation European single currency area, membership of which is meant to be irrevocable. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has urged Greeks to reject the "humiliating" terms offered last week by international creditors in a deal that is no longer on the table, and accused lenders of "blackmail" by withholding credit.
  • Aetna to buy Humana for $37 billion in largest insurance deal
    The combination will push Aetna close to Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) No.2 insurer spot by membership, and would nearly triple Aetna's Medicare Advantage business. The deal will face antitrust scrutiny but if it goes through it would dwarf the previous largest insurance deal announced just this week, where Swiss property and casualty giant ACE Ltd (ACE.N) announced it was buying Chubb Corp (CB.N) for $28 billion.
  • European bonds and stocks on the defensive before tight Greek vote
    Supporters of Greece's bailout terms have taken a wafer-thin lead over the "No" vote backed by the leftist government, 48 hours before Sunday's referendum, an opinion poll showed. "Attention will be pinned on Greece and this is likely to see investors cautious as we head into the weekend ... Even if we get a Yes' vote, this means the country must go back to the negotiation table and try to knock something together again," IG market analyst Stan Shamu said.
