Banks Participate in the Small Change for SOLV—Big Change for Oregon ProgramSalem-News.com Business Report
Oregon banks will serve as depositors to collect small change for the program.
(SALEM, Ore.) - The Oregon Bankers Association (OBA), through its member Oregon banks, has partnered with SOLV to serve as depository sources throughout the year for all small change collected for the Small Change for SOLV – Big Change for Oregon program.
Oregon banks participating in the program include Wells Fargo, Oregon Pacific Bank, Pacific West Bank and Sterling Savings Bank.
SOLV was founded in 1969 by Governor Tom McCall and community leaders as a non-profit organization. It unites government agencies, businesses and individuals through volunteer projects that enhance the livability of Oregon.
The Small Change for SOLV-Big Change for Oregon program was created to fill a gap in SOLV’s funding. SOLV is best known throughout Oregon as the annual Oregon beach clean-up.
"We’re honored to be associated with SOLV and encourage Oregonians to participate in the Small Change for SOLV –Big Change for Oregon program by bringing in donations to the participating Oregon banks," says OBA’s President and CEO Linda Navarro.
The Oregon Bankers Association
Established in 1905, the Oregon Bankers Association is Oregon's only full-service trade association representing state and national commercial banks, thrifts and savings banks chartered to do business in Oregon. More information is available at oregonbankers.com.
Founded in 1969 by Oregon Governor Tom McCall to address litter and vandalism problems, SOLV's mission has expanded to reach every county in the state and to bring together government agencies, businesses and individuals in programs and projects to enhance the livability of Oregon.
Because of this expansion SOLV no longer calls itself "Stop Oregon Litter and Vandalism" and has adopted the acronym, SOLV, as its official name. More information is available at solv.org.
