Sandy bank makes donation to Oral Hull Foundation
As a hyper-local media company, Pamplin Media Group prides itself on giving back to the communities it covers. This year, The Post had the opportunity to work with community partner Clackamas County Bank in Pamplin's Give Local Campaign. That alliance fostered fundraising efforts and promotion of the Oral Hull Foundation for the Blind.
"Clackamas County Bank has a long-standing relationship with Oral Hull dating back to its beginnings in 1962," said Clackamas County Bank President Cathy Stuchlik. "We appreciate the opportunities they provide for individuals with vision impairment. The park is a wonderful place to host activities and retreats in a beautiful and safe environment.
"And, the fact that they also extend their facility and services to outside groups and organizations (the Kiwanis Club's annual cruise-in fundraiser) which in turn benefits and supports our entire community," Stuchlik sand. "We are pleased to be able to show our support for such a worthwhile organization."
Stuchlik, accompanied by the bank's marketing specialist, Brian York, The Post's marketing director Alisa Applegate and The Post's marketing specialist Rich Nobes, presented Oral Hull executive director Sharon Elder with a check for $1,000 on Wednesday, Dec. 4, earmarked for programs hosted by the foundation.
"This generous donation, from the Clackamas County Bank will be used for seniors diagnosed with degenerative vision loss, to 'Keep Hope and Dreams Alive' through our Living with Vision Loss classes," Elder said. "No one is turned away who wants to continue living independently, despite sight loss."
