Umpqua Bank Donates to TVCRN

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESRecognizing that creating opportunities for children to thrive in early childhood is a key interest area of Umpqua Bank’s community giving program, it’s no surprise that the financial institution awarded Treasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery $5,000 for expenses related to its therapeutic classroom for the 2015-16 year of operations.

Dennis and Sherri Hironaka Give Back to the Community

3aWe have been very fortunate. We had meaningful careers and now have the resources and good health to do many of the things we’ve wanted to do as retirees – mostly, that includes spending time with family (think: grandchildren) and friends. But it also includes the opportunity to give back to a community we love. There are certain things we especially care about in this community and when it came time to sit down and think about what we want to leave as a legacy, the Relief Nursery was among those Treasure Valley causes we want to support even after we’re gone.

We regularly give to TVCRN, whether it’s bringing a case of paper towels to their Stuff the Bus event, or donating during their year-end campaign. We believe that this organization is truly helping others, and we were in public education long enough to know that many, many families need help and if they’d only received it sooner, maybe their children could have avoided some of their struggles in school.

We don’t plan on going anywhere soon, but we love the thought of helping struggling families – even after we’re gone.

600 Children’s Books for TVCRN

1_300 Josh Richins, who will be a senior at Fruitland High School this fall, conducted a Book Drive for the Treasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery during May. In June, he delivered 600 children’s books for TVCRN interventionists to give to clients during home visits or Family Connection events, or to use in the nursery’s therapeutic classroom. The project, which involved the help of 25 friends and family members, will help Richins earn his Eagle Scout badge. TVCRN is a nonprofit organization in Malheur County whose mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect by strengthening struggling families.

“Our youngest children are not only kept safe because of the Relief Nursery’s efforts, but they are also better prepared for kindergarten with improved social-emotional skills and cognition,” said TVCRN Executive Director Kathie Collins. “That happens with the support of community members like Josh; he can be very proud that so many parents – who otherwise wouldn’t – will have books to read to their toddlers.”
