Dolores Zeese, Thermal Belt Outreach volunteer and resident of White Oak Village Retirement Community in Tryon, recently challenged other White Oak Village residents to dig deep for the needy families of Polk County, especially the children. John Barber, executive vice-president and CFO of White Oak Management, picked up her challenge and the company pledged matching funds for all funds raised by White Oak Village Retirement Community. Residents gave a total of $1,200, some of which was designated for the Feed-A-Kid Weekend Back Program, and White Oak Management matched those funds for a total gift of $2,400.
Carol Newton, Thermal Belt Outreach director said, “We are extremely grateful for the support of White Oak residents and management. It truly makes a difference.”
On a sad note, Zeese passed away on Tuesday, Sept. 25. White Oak Village residents said she was devoted to the mission of Thermal Belt Outreach, as well as to the work of her church and the life of White Oak Village Retirement Community, and her love for others and enthusiasm for life will be greatly missed.
