Together we rise
Blue Zones Project
As a proud sponsor of the Blue Zones Project in Klamath Falls, Sky Lakes is helping to transform well-being in our community. The Blue Zones Project focuses on making small but sustainable improvements across environment, policy, and social networks. That means residents and business owners alike are focused on improving well-being for themselves and their neighbors. Together, we can lower obesity rates, smoking and chronic disease to create a healthier, happier place to live, work, and play.
Sky Lakes has partnered with Oregon State University's Klamath County Extension Service and Food Hero to help Jennifer Newman, a registered and licensed dietitian, certified diabetes educator, and nutrition coordinator at Sky Lakes Wellness Center, with a six-week series of cooking demonstrations to encourage better nutrition choices.

American Red Cross bloodmobile
The Klamath Falls bloodmobile collects thousands of units of life-saving blood every year to serve the needs of Sky Lakes Medical Center and other hospitals throughout southern Oregon. Its efforts have touched countless lives. Having driven 200,000+ mountainous miles, the bloodmobile has earned its retirement. Sky Lakes invested $50,000 toward the successful $500,000 replacement campaign, which will bring a state-of-the-art bloodmobile to the Klamath Basin, and keep in on the road for its first five years.
