Richland's Donavon Koker set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to take his son to Lincoln City, Oregon. The 12-year old missed out on a planned field trip to Oregon due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Koker is hoping to spend Spring break on vacation in Lincoln City. This will be his son's first visit to the ocean. Koker plans to use the raised funds for gas, food, attractions, etc. He wants the boy to experience the Oregon Aquarium, the Seaside boardwalk, and other adventures.

Your generosity has been absolutely amazing. Thank you all so much for the outpouring of support. We have an airbnb booked for the week of Spring break and now have enough to take my brother and his family also, making it our first real full family vacation ever. We still plan on donating some to a charity of Lincoln's choice since I think it's important to teach him that helping those in need is a very important quality to have. Again thank you all so much, its been very humbling to see the community come together to help us.
