Remembering a local leader
We were saddened to learn of the recent passing of Don Nunamaker. As a local business leader and philanthropist, Don touched the lives of many in Hood River and throughout the community. His wife, Janet, has been a member of the Gorge Community Foundation’s Board of Directors since its inception. The Nunamker family and Don Nunamaker Realtors are fundholders whose generous contributions support many regional non-profit organizations.
The Nunamaker family has asked that those interested in making contributions in Don’s name do so online at the Nunamaker Family Fund or by mailing a check to GCF, PO Box 1711, Hood River OR 97031.
