Grays Harbor, Inc. (GGHI) is excited to announce local biodiesel refinery, Renewable Energy Group (REG) as the founding investor of the GGHI Member Dues Relief Fund.

Last month REG recognized GGHI as a local organization working hard to support our local community and presented the organization with a $5,000 donation. This funding allows GGHI to launch a Member Dues Relief Fund for eligible members experiencing financial hardship.

The team at GGHI doesn’t want any business to lose the benefit of their GGHI membership, especially the benefit of having a web listing in our online directory. The GGHI Online Directory has had nearly 80,000 views in the past 12 months and over 2,000 customers were referred to local businesses directly from the online listing! REG’s generous donation will aid businesses that might have to make the difficult decision of discontinuing their investment in GGHI.

“This fund will ensure that the Harbor’s local businesses do not lose the benefit of a constant and reliable web presence,” said Greater Grays Harbor, Inc. CEO, Lynnette Buffington. “In the coming days we will be reaching out to eligible businesses and organizations to offer this opportunity. We are so thankful for REG’s investment in this effort and appreciate their support of a strong local economy.”
