POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Council honors VOA Oregon's Kay Toran - August 19, 2009

This morning, Nick and his colleagues recognized Kay Toran, President and CEO of Volunteers of America Oregon, with an official proclamation in Council.

 

Kay has led VOA's Oregon branch for 10 years, working to increase community awareness of VOA's efforts to improve the lives of Oregon's children, families, and seniors.

 

Volunteers of America stands out among non-profits for its efficiency; 88 cents of every dollar given to VOA directly funds services for communities in need. Programs in Oregon serve our most vulnerable by addressing drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, poverty, and providing for our seniors.
