Guild Mortgage donates
blankets to the homeless
The Daily Astorian
Guild Mortgage North
Coast has partnered with Ore-
gon blanket makers Sackcloth
& Ashes to give back to those
in need. On July 14, Guild
went to the Astoria Rescue
Mission to donate leece blan-
kets, a task they will continue
on a monthly basis.
When Sackcloth & Ashes
founder Bob Dalton found
out his mother had become
homeless in 2013, he began
calling shelters to ind out
what their needs were. The
response: blankets. Therefore,
for every blanket purchased,
Sackcloth & Ashes donates
an additional leece blanket
to a local homeless shelter in
need. Guild partnered with
Sackcloth & Ashes to pro-
vide blankets to customers as
closing gifts for loans, while
also personally donating a
blanket to the Astoria Rescue
“This is a continued effort
of our mission to improve
the communities we serve,”
branch manager Patrick Wel-
berg said. “Giving back is a
big part of our culture.”
Kathy Israel, local Guild
loan oficer said, “I’m excited
to provide a closing gift to my
clients that also lets me make
a difference with such an
important organization in my
home town.”
Guild hopes to donate
between 10 to 20 blankets to
Astoria Rescue Mission every
Doughboy rededication
event planned for Saturday
The Daily Astorian
In honor of the 90th birthday
of the Doughboy Monument in
Uniontown, a rededication is
being held at 3 p.m. Saturday at
the statue, sponsored by Clat-
sop Post 12 American Legion

tion. In case of bad weather, the

The statue, whose oficial
name is “Over the Top at Canti-
gny,” is named after the village
in France where the irst Amer-
ican battle took place in 1918
during World War I. Designed
by John Paulding and cast
by the American Art Bronze
Foundry of Chicago, the mon-
ument was originally presented
to the city of Astoria by Clatsop
Post 12 on July 21, 1926.
At 4 p.m., there is a recep-
tion and birthday cake at
the American Legion hall.
The program includes dis-
plays about Post 12 and Can-
tigny and charter members of

Memorial of the Fallen in the

served at 5 p.m.
