Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB: Carrie Oldright, the owner of The Timber Faller’s Daughter shop in Reedsport, was able to combine her talent and a local community need seamlessly. At the beginning of COVID-19 in early 2020, the Lower Umpqua Hospital was in need of masks so Oldright began requesting for some sewing back up on Facebook and was able to coordinate a group of local individuals to sew masks for the hospital. Hundreds of masks were delivered to the hospital and Reedsport proved once again what it means to be a supportive community.
