Now that the stresses and emotions of the election season are behind us (and I don’t know a single person who is not grateful for that), it is time to remember our own gratitude for the freedoms we enjoy. While each of us has our own personal way to give back to the communities we live in, many people are not aware of Oregon’s Day of Giving which is just around the corner on Tuesday, November 29th. Many of our non-profit friends are registered on the www.oregoniansgive.org website and are ready to receive your donation. So while you fret over what to buy Grandma for Christmas, or what gift to give your neighbor, child, husband, or friend, consider first a donation to the hard working non-profits in your community. These are the services that provide shelter for the homeless, support to families facing crisis, tender companionship to the elderly, or childcare for single parents, to name just a few.

As a local community bank, Premier Community Bank supports over 100 local non-profit organizations in a variety of ways. From our employees who volunteer countless hours, banking services especially designed for our non-profit partners, to cash and in-kind giving, we are grateful to be able to give to the communities and neighborhoods where we do business.

So this next Tuesday, think about a gift to your favorite non-profit and then enjoy the holiday season with your family and friends.
