14A Wednesday, May 17, 2017 Portola Reporter Plumas Bank in Portola lived up to its motto "HERE. For Good" on May 3. Last month, the bank held a community-wide contest and asked Portola citizens to vote for their favorite nonprofit organization from a provided list. Plumas Bank donated funds to the winning organization: Every 15 Minutes. The winning program is an impactful, educational program for high school juniors and seniors facilitated by the California Highway Patrol. The program centers on the alarming statistics associated with driving under the influence and shows students that their decisions have long-lasting repercussions -- a drunk driving accident is not an accident, it's a choice.
