Dear friends,

Fall is upon us! The rain has arrived, the jack-o-lanterns are out, and the changing colors greet us wherever we travel.  Our team at the Benton Community Foundation is in a season of change as well and we wanted to share a few notes of interest with you! 
Holcomb Youth Hero Award Ceremony
   Monday, October 23rd, 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
   Boys and Girls Club of Corvallis

Last awarded in 2008, the Holcomb Youth Hero Award will honor eight local Boy Scouts who rescued their injured troop leader during a backpacking trip this summer. In 1997, Billie and the late Bob Holcomb created this award in partnership with BCF, to honor acts of bravery in our community. This Monday, the Boys and Girls Club of Corvallis will host the ceremony and reception. 

Email Steven if you wish to attend.  We would love to see you there! 
Homeless to Housing
    Supporting those experiencing homelessness
 
Did you know that as many as 1,000 people in Benton County are experiencing homelessness?  This year, our donors provided more than $95,000 in funding that purchased a lift for a food bank, supported case management at a women’s shelter, and helped working families who are experiencing homelessness afford childcare. 
 
Want to visit an amazing non-profit focused on this effort?  Contact Sarah today
