This business deserves to be recognized for all that they do for our community.
KOA sponsors an Autism 5K walk in April. In May, they host a Care Camp for children with cancer, and at Halloween they provide a Monster Bash to keep kids safe and raise food to benefit the Clatsop Emergency Food Bank. At Christmastime, Christmas tree lot proceeds are also donated.
The letter nominating KOA for this award says, “My primary interest in writing this recommendation is due to their dedication to help the seniors of our area stay healthy by opening up their swimming pool all winter for an ENCORE class from Clatsop Community College. In addition to offering the pool for the class, they allow senior citizens to use the pool all winter long at no charge. They also provide showers with shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel also all free of charge. Their staff not only keeps the pool in running order and suitable for swimming, but they manage the exercise equipment twice a week for the class from Labor Day to Memorial Day.”
