Happy Thanksgiving!

This time of year always reminds me of family, friends, and almost every year…eating too much food.  Read below to find out what we’ve been doing since we last checked in, and of course Happy Turkey Day!

 
UPDATE: Holcomb Youth Hero Award Ceremony

If you missed the Youth Hero Ceremony, you should know we had a great time celebrating and honoring some amazing youth in our community with a standing-room-only crowd!  Billie, Larry, and Linda Holcomb handed out the awards, and a $15,000 check was delivered to Boy Scout Troop 170!  Thank you to the Holcomb Family for their generosity and amazing community spirit! 
Homeless to Housing  -  Visits completed
 
From Alsea… to a few blocks from our office… we travelled all over the county to meet with community leaders focused on helping people experiencing homelessness. We learned a great deal over the last few months. If you would like to know more about what our region is doing to fight homelessness reach out to Sarah today at sarah@bcfgives.org to learn how you can join us in our efforts. 
Giving Tuesday  -  November 28, 2017

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is #GivingTuesday, a nation-wide day of philanthropy, and an opportunity for all of us to support those charities that help our community.

Partnering with local philanthropists, BCF distributes scholarships for youth, helps non-profits plan for the future, and funds county-wide initiatives that fight homelessness and rural poverty. To support BCF's Leadership Fund and help us continue this work, please donate here this holiday season.


And don’t forget… If you need to get out of the rain, feel free to stop in and say hello at our offices in Corvallis... or check in on us from the warmth of your own home by visiting us on Facebook.

Happy Thanksgiving!
