ABC DEF – Dayton Education Fund

A Better Community – Dayton Education Foundation (ABC-DEF) was established in 2000 to sustain and enhance learning opportunities for students in Dayton, Oregon. A group of committed individuals recognized the power of building a stronger community by investing in education. Through a combination of teacher grants and scholarships for graduating seniors, ABC-DEF raises funds annually to enrich classroom instruction and support students’ post-high school training.

Mission Statement:

“Building futures through enhanced educational opportunities.”


Kathy’s HopePicture

October is Breast Cancer awareness month, and Hope on the Hill works to bring more than just awareness to women in Yamhill County. When a business or individual donates $600 to Hope on the Hill, Christmas Décor by C and D Landscape Co. will install 1000 pink mini lights on a tree of their choosing and a yard sign will be provided at the base of each tree, identifying your support. All proceeds are utilized to support Kathy’s Hope. A fund which provides financial assistance to women and families impacted by breast cancer. This can be anything from literature to assist their children in understanding and adjusting to the diagnoses, gas cards for hospital trips, medical bills, childcare costs, or any other expense associated with treatment.

Each year, approximately 75 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Yamhill County. Many of these women have families and jobs that they depend on. The financial challenges of having breast cancer is an added stress to an already emotional time. To help ease this stress in a small way, Christmas Décor by C and D Landscape Co. is donating their products, resources, and time to decorate trees around town. Previously, you may have noticed a few pink lighted trees in McMinnville and now is your chance to join us in support! 8 local businesses have taken part in this initiative: Ability Physical Therapy, Corrigan-Patterson-Wickman, Dutch Bros., Farnham Electric, Hyder Family Dentistry, Dr. Amy Wark dmd, Church on the Hill, and C and D Landscape Co.

“Personally I do this because I am called to do so,” says Isaac Kearns of C and D Landscape Co. “but cancer doesn’t care who you are or what you believe in, or whether you have private or public health insurance. Either way these women are physically, emotionally, and financially impacted, and I wanted to do something that was more than be aware, but rather action based and helpful.”
