Pam Noor with the Central Oregon Council on Aging says it could have been catastrophic if a deal hadn't been reached last week.

 

"The government shutting down, we would have had to stop serving our meals on wheels, because like most non profits in central Oregon, we don't have reserves to fund it.  The bad news is it only goes to February and hopefully we won't be facing this again shortly."

 

The sequestration is still in place and Noor says that has forced a 160-thosuand dollar budget cut for their programs.

 

She says they are already brainstorming about more fundraising to prevent further interruptiosn to their meal progams.
