Plumas Bank launches local peanut butter drive

Saturday, May 17, 2014 — Plumas Bank has recently launched its first regional peanut butter drive, which will run May 1 to May 30 throughout Plumas Bank’s service area, consisting of 11 branch offices in the counties of Plumas, Lassen, Modoc, Shasta, Placer and Nevada.

Plumas Bank President and Chief Executive Officer, Andrew J. Ryback, remarked, “In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for many people, hunger is a very real struggle. Some believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different.

“Right now, many people in our own communities are at risk of hunger. These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot always make ends meet and may be forced to go without food.

Fundraiser planned to assist premature baby

UPDATE: TOMORROW'S CAR WASH WILL BE HELD AT ALLIANCE GAS STATION, NOT THE BOWLING ALLEY. 

Friday, May 16 — When local resident Charlene Norvell left work early because of back pain, she had no idea she would deliver her son in a parking lot at 26 weeks gestation.

Asher Eli was born weighing 1 pound, 14 ounces and mother and son were taken to Renown Medical Center in Reno that afternoon on April 24.

Now, friends and family are organizing events and have set up an account to raise money to help with expenses. Asher is expected to stay in NICU through the end of July and Norvell also has a 21-month-old son. A car wash will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, May 17 at Alliance Gas Station. An account has also been opened at the Golden 1 Credit Union under Baby Asher Fund, account number 1606134.
