Peirone Prize Winners 

Give Guide 2015

For the sixth year, we're recognizing three big-time local givers via the Peirone Prize: Stephanie Boyle, Jessie Isadore and Rebecca Schroeder. Each personifies the qualities that make the Inland Northwest such a giving place. The prize is named in honor of our grandparents, Joe and Alice Peirone, who set an example of giving for our family that we try to build on through the Inlander all year long.

As you read the winners' stories, remember all the organizations and individuals out there who do so much for neighbors in need. A big part of the Give Guide is to shine a light on that effort so the community can say "thank you."

This year's Give Guide hits at a particularly tough moment, as we are all thinking about our neighbors who are dealing with the devastating wildfires; some who have even lost their homes. So please be generous; do your own research, or consider one of the following organizations: the Okanogan County Community Action Council (occac.com); the Community Foundation of North Central Washington (cfncw.org); there's also a Go Fund Me set up for the families of the firefighters who lost their lives and the ones badly injured last week (gofundme.com/methowfirefighters).
