Every Wednesday here on Current State, Neighbors in Action talks with people working together to improve the lives of others in their communities. Today, we learn about the Portland Community Fund Association, a group that has responded to the devastation of that town’s tornado on June 22nd. The organization has established the Portland Disaster Relief Fund to help people pay for repairs in the weeks since the storm.

David Palme is president of the Portland Community Fund Association, and Lee Klein, a Portland business owner who has been a beneficiary of the Portland Disaster Relief Fund.
