The Elizabeth Hoke Memorial Trust will provide a free community Thanksgiving dinner Nov. 25, 1 – 3 p.m. at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 303 N. Church St., Silverton. Due to COVID-19 precautions, it will be a drive through event.

Elizabeth was born on Sept. 12, 1999 in Silverton and spent her entire life living on her family’s farm. She was a member of St. Paul’s Catholic Church. Elizabeth graduated Valedictorian from Silverton High School in June 2017. She was killed in an automobile accident by a speeding, drunk driver while on her way to her first week of college at Western Oregon University. She planned to study biology.

The trust honors the legacy and memory of Elizabeth Hoke by providing scholarships and grants for the people and causes that Elizabeth cared most about. Its mission is to fulfill the needs of teachers and assist teachers, families and communities. It works with community leaders to identify the greatest needs and offer swift and direct response.
