It was my pleasure to strongly recommend this business, headquartered in Cannon Beach, be given an award for their charitable contributions in the South Clatsop County area. This business opened their doors more than 50 years ago, and has remained in the family since then. The owners and employees are prominent in the community and enhance the quality of life in South Clatsop County through their involvement with various civic groups including: Seaside Kids Incorporated, Seaside School District, and through our organization, the Sunset Empire Park & Recreation District.
During that time they have provided both monetary sponsorship as well as generous donations in order to enhance or even provide special events and other activities. Specifically, they have provided enough of their famous salt water taffy to fill 6,000 eggs at our Spring Egg Hunt, candy bags, and prizes for our Halloween Thriller event and family carnival, support for our Children’s Holiday Celebration and, the latest example, a generous financial donation that provided a top notch photographer at our Daddy-Daughter Dance. Their partnership is truly invaluable and sets an example for many other businesses to be mindful of these opportunities and to give back.
