Ben Núñez left us on Dec. 1, last year, but, like he did so graciously in life, he wanted to support organizations he held close to his heart by leave behind one final gift. Gifts that would impact the community well after his time here had passed.

Last week, his son, also named Ben, delivered $100,000 to Tillamook Bay Community College Foundation, $50,000 to the Tillamook YMCA and $25,000 to the Netarts WEBS, all organizations Ben sat on boards and supported for years through volunteering or through financial support.
