2017 Projects


We’re nourishing the soul of Yamhill County with exciting projects in arts & education, food & agriculture, and history & community.  Bounty of Yamhill County (BOYC) is one of those projects with a mission to attract national (and international!) attention to the dynamic culinary scene here. BOYC is also primary fundraiser that supports our other important projects. Find out more at http://yamhillenrichmentsociety.org

BOOKS FOR BABIES

Starting the drive towards literacy from birth, YES funds a program to provide every baby born at the McMinnville Hospital with a new book, with a label explaining the many reasons to read to babies. Books are available in English and Spanish. Encouraging reading at all ages, YES has also procured books to give to the newborn’s older siblings. In 2013, we took it a step further and collaborated with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Yamhill County children ages 0-5 can register to receive a free age-appropriate book in the mail every month. The cost to YES is only $25 per year per child.

 NOURISH YAMHILL VALLEY

Built on the mission that food has the power to change our community, Nourish Yamhill Valley cultivates projects that build infrastructure and create a healthy, holistic, and equitable food system in Yamhill County. Our hope is that in 2020, Nourish Yamhill Valley is an established community collaborative committed to a holistic, equitable, and resilient food system.

MUSIC ENRICHMENT

YES is proud to support several music education projects in Yamhill County. Music plays an invaluable role in the development of young minds. We help fund both the fall and spring Koncert for Kids by bussing all McMinnville 3rd and 4th graders to concerts, and we are a major sponsor for the McMinnville School District Summer Music Camp.
