Willamette Coin Club Contributes to Relief Efforts

On Thursday, September 20, 2001 at its regular monthly meeting the members of the Willamette Coin Club unanimously voted to contribute $1,000 to the World Trade Center disaster relief efforts. The local recipient of $500 was Northwest Medical Teams, located in Portland, Oregon. An additional $500 was donated to the Uniformed Firefighter’s Association of New York City, New York. The text of the letter sent to each organization reads in part: “The members of The Willamette Coin Club have voted to assist you in your need to take care of the widows and orphans left by the tragic and unconscionable attack on the World Trade Centers. We have authorized $1,000 to be donated to two organizations. The widows and Children’s Fund is one, and our own Northwest Medical Teams is the other. The Northwest Medical Teams has sent members to New York City to assist in the recovery. We are all so proud of you for your selflessness in taking care of the people that depend on you and this is the only way we can think of to ensure that you and yours are taken care of in your hour of need. Thank you so much for your care, dedication and life efforts.” The Willamette Coin Club will continue to contribute to the community in ongoing projects funded by local coin shows and other activities of the club. This donation has been made possible by the support the club has enjoyed from the community as a whole and the community of coin collectors and dealers of the numismatic community around America.
