HFO Marketing Executive Earns A Top Multnomah County Award for Volunteerism

HFO is pleased to announce that marketing director Aaron Kirk Douglas has received the Multnomah County 2011 Hilltop Award for individual achievement from the Commission on Children, Families & Community. The award recognizes Douglas as a “local hero” for making a positive difference for low-income individuals and families in Multnomah County through his involvement with Big Brothers/Big Sisters Columbia Northwest.

Douglas, who is a member of the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Ambassador Board, said “receiving the award was a real honor. Being part of the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program has been the most rewarding experience of my life and I am grateful to HFO for its ongoing support of my involvement with community nonprofit groups.” Douglas and his little brother were featured on a Portland TV morning show in February.
HFO Partner Greg Frick said “We’re delighted that Aaron is being recognized and we are proud to have him demonstrating our company’s ongoing commitment to community service.”
