Meredith Lodging Announces Funding is Complete for the Lincoln City

Police K-9 Project

Lincoln City, OR.  Meredith Lodging (along with Oksenholt Capital) announced this week that they have completed their announced matching gifts campaign and fully funded the Lincoln City Police K-9 project. The mission of the Lincoln City Police K-9 Project is to promote a positive relationship between the community and the Lincoln City Police Department through education on the modern day use of the Law Enforcement K-9. The matching funds effort, launched by Meredith Lodging in the late Fall, raised $20,000 to complete program funding.

Aaron Linfoot, Vice President for Meredith Lodging shared, “We are so proud to be part of a community that comes together around good causes that benefit all of us, like the Lincoln City Police K-9 project. Once we announced the matching funds campaign, and the end of year deadline, local citizens really stepped up and we met our goal in late December. Meredith Lodging continues to be committed to investing in the success of the communities where our employees live and work, and where our Meredith Lodging Owners have homes.”

“We are thrilled that this important effort is fully funded and so grateful to the community of Lincoln City and to Meredith Lodging for stepping up to make it happen,” commented Officer Holly Blakely, who is leading up the project for the Lincoln City Police. “Now we can formally launch the program and begin to benefit the local community with a stronger K-9 protection program.”

The fully funded program will cover the cost of K-9 handler courses and certifications, as well as necessary equipment for the dog, such as K-9 vests, transportation equipment and a kennel.  All details of the program can be seen at
