- Special Olympics Oregon Polar Plunge
2020 has been a year full of unexpected events, and the wildfires burning across our beautiful state are no exception. Our members, friends, family and communities are being impacted by these fires right now. You can help Oregon wildfire victims by donating to the Red Cross Cascades Region.
The Red Cross is in the middle of the aftermath supporting people who have been displaced by wildfires. They are coordinating closely with partners and local officials to mobilize a massive relief effort and ensure people have a safe place to stay, food and comfort during this time of uncertainty. So far, they have provided Oregonians 4,199 shelter stays, 19,085 hotel stays, and 31,426 meals served.
Oregonians has matched the first $15,000 fundraised. Together we've raised $30,154 for Red Cross Cascades Region as of September 18th. You can donate online or in a branch.
If you want to volunteer and help the Red Cross in this effort locally, you can find information here.
The annual Oregonians Credit Union Polar Plunge took place February 22, 2020. Each year our members and employees make donations, raise money, and even volunteer to take the plunge into the freezing Columbia River all in support of Special Olympics Oregon. This year we exceeded our goal of $8,000 raising a total of $8,430!
