A very big THANK YOU to the employees at the Downtown Roseburg, Garden Valley and Sutherlin branches of Banner Bank! Saturday 5/20, about 10 Banner Bank employees and some of their family members participated in the Greater Douglas United Way’s Day of Caring at The FISH Food Pantry. They scrubbed and cleaned all the produce bins, pulled weeds and worked on other landscape maintenance, and repainted the Pantry restroom. It was really amazing how much they accomplished. Great job!!! Everything looks SUPER!
