Disaster Support Mission is designed to help communities in natural disasters which may include fires, forest fires, floods, tornadoes and earthquakes. We help in providing data communication, laptops, cooking supplies, lighting, collection of donated goods and transportation of goods to those affected in a natural disaster. We help in fundraising, such as benefit dinners or raffles for those affected from the disasters
To date, we have helped with the Grant County fires in 2015, we supported the FBI in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge takeover in the winter of 2016, the Harney County firewood shortage in the winter of 2017, and Hurricane Harvey in Texas, as well Hurricane Michael in Florida. This year we worked on the major flooding of the Umatilla county area. Look at our NW coordinator bio for more information. In the wake of the current health crisis, we have begun helping with Covid 19 and families with food needs. Contact Valeri O'Dai if you are interested in learning more.
We are providing a service to rural Harney, Grant, and Malhuer counties. We have a great selection of foods to choose from and we are adding new product and taking special orders. Please let us know how we can help in this time of crises!
Valerie is our NW Region disaster coordinator helping to make a difference either helping with disasters or preparing for the next big one.

Christian is a CEO of a computer network firm in Florida. He helps direct goods and services in the event of a disaster.

Dustin works everyday to help families in our communities of Hines and Burns, and runs our Operation Christmas program to help families around Christmas time with their needs. He is a volunteer firefighter and so is his father. He has a heart of gold and will help just about anyone!
Jeff Cotton is our director and has been since 2005. He helps run the Mobile Market that we call Horseshoe because of the shape of the county and the communities that it serves. This project was due to launch in the summer of 2020, but due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak, things have sped up rapidly. We are taking special orders on groceries, and deliver to the rural areas once a week. We have a lot of communities that are at least 50-90 miles from the grocery store. We are hoping this helps ranchers, farmers, and others affected by Covid-19.
Kevin is our Vice President with a heart of gold like our other volunteers. In his spare time he travels to do escorts for funerals, parades. He designed the RGB Tahoe from the bottom up and uses our Tahoe to promote awareness for those killed in the line of duty.
Bob Paulsson works in the computer software industry and spends his spare time in this truck spreading awareness of fallen officers, and K-9s killed in the line of duty. He is raising money for items that departments need such as food, toys, harnesses, and other things that are not covered in local budgets.
We are always looking for more volunteers for the causes we support. If you are interested drop us a line and we will reach out to you. Thank you!
