Country Coach Friends Inc. (CCFI), an international chapter of Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), recently raised $6,095 to benefit to Oregon-based charities who serve those in need.
Junction City Local Aid, Junction City, and God’s Storehouse, Harrisburg, were the beneficiaries of the charitable giving of 100 attendees at the 3rd annual CCFI Friendship Rally in Albany, Ore., Aug. 21-25 at Linn County Fair & Expo Center, according to a news release.
The designated charities, Junction City Local Aid & God’s Storehouse, addressed the group informing of the great need for supplemental food and services to families within the Lane and Linn county areas. This international FMCA chapter responded with their generous donations at a fun-filled charity auction held during the rally.
Jerry O’Connor and wife Sherry presented the donated funds to the two agencies. “It’s our privilege to support such valuable service organizations, giving back to the area where we have enjoyed so many years of motorcoaching memories,” Jerry O’Connor, club president noted.
The CCFI Friendship Rally, an annual event which finds motorcoachers returning to the area where all Country Coach motorcoaches were originally built, was generously supported by over 30 different RV-related and other local businesses.
Country Coach Corp., Oregon Motorcoach Service and Premier RV Services were three major sponsors, with many other key contributors were local and national businesses including: Dickman Tire Center, Carr Industries, DLH Design, Foretravel of Texas, Fly By Might, Advanced Satellite, Countryside Interiors, Blue Ox Towing Systems, Mary Moppins, Geeks onTour, Mac McCoy and Premier Motorcoach Services of Tucson, Ariz.
