Operation Uplift

Cancer Support Organization for the Olympic Peninsula 
Operation Uplift Community Supporters
In 2008, Linda deBord, former Community Service Award Winner and respected Soroptimist, had a vision for a city-wide campaign to raise money to support those battling and surviving cancer.  She created the concept for Pink-Up Port Angeles and for many years lead the fund raising effort with the support of Soroptimist International of Port Angeles and the Operation Uplift Board.  Because of her personal financial support, guidance, and leadership, the community came together to support this event,

The Operation Uplift Organization receives tremendous support from it's local communities in Clallam County.  Without the help of these organizations and individuals, the services of Operation Uplift could not be offered.  The Organization is dependent upon the community, it does not receive support from governmental agencies.
April 29, 2015:  Once again the Port Angeles and Sequim girls softball teams played a special game to raise money for Operation Uplift.  Everyone was dressed in pink and Mrs. Olympic Peninsula, Magan Waldron, spoke to the crowd on behalf of Operation uplift.  It was a great time, fun for all.  
Mad Hatter Tea (October 2015):  The Operation Uplift Board Members and cancer survivors attended the annual Mad Hatter Tea in Sequim and were presented with a check for $2000 to support the OU efforts.  The Tea was very well attended and the Board was proud to represent Operation Uplift at this event.

Thank You Soroptimist International of Port Angeles, SIPA

Once again the citizens and businesses of Port Angeles demonstrated their generosity by supporting Operation Uplift through the Pink-Up Campaign.  The City Council recognized this effort by declaring that for one week, Port Angeles would be called “Pink Angeles.” Businesses decorated their windows with pink ribbons and pink teddy bears were given to sponsors to display showing their support.
Through generous donations, Operation Uplift (OU) will be able to continue to offer services to cancer victims and survivors in our city and county. For the past 11 years, Soroptimist International of Port Angeles, Noon Club (SIPA), has advocated for OU through a variety of fund raising activities. This past summer they sponsored a bake sale, golf tournament, Spaghetti dinner, and Pink Margaritas on Ice Gala. In addition, they solicited donations from many members of this community. As a result of these efforts, $38,000 was raised for Operation Uplift. 
Operation Uplift has been a continuous resource for this community since it began in 1983. This donation will be used to assist individuals and families as they battle all types of cancer. Operation Uplift offers free breast health clinics, limited financial support, 24 hours per day telephone support, and supplies for cancer survivors. All funds raised will be used within Clallam County. The organization is managed by a volunteer Board, there are no paid employees. You can contact OU by phone, 360 457-5141 or online at www.operationuplift.org.  
Thanks to the more than 120 sponsors of Pink-Up this year and to SIPA for your tireless work. Because of this support, Operation Uplift will be able to continue to offer support to the citizens of our community.
