It Was Like a Great Big Community Hug

Jennifer and Casey O’Toole own O’Toole’s Pub in Roseburg. Long term residents of Douglas County their sons are ninth generation Roseburg. The O’Tooles organized a multi-day fundraiser at their pub donating over $10,000 to Greater Douglas United Way.

People wanted to share and just give each other a hug. That’s what we were able to do at our place. It’s a tiny little building and we packed a whole bunch of people in there and it was like a great big community hug.
