The Heart of Oregon Corps (HOC) has raised over a half million dollars for a fleet of new vehicles, meeting its capital campaign goal. Along with Trust support, HOC received funds from the MCM Fund, The Ford Family Foundation, The Collins Foundation, The Eddie Williamson Foundation and The Oregon Community Foundation, as well as a number of corporate partners.
Every year, HOC “provides job skills training, education, and leadership development to over 300 local young people who face major barriers to success.” Congratulations to HOC for reaching this milestone!
“We are astounded by the community support we’ve received to modernize the vehicles and equipment that are quite literally the wheels of our organization,” comments Laura Handy, Executive Director. “The $550,000 invested ensures our new fleet and fleet maintenance program and reserve fund will continue to safely transport over 300 youth per year to job training project sites, college tours and community service events into the future.”
