Whatcom Community Foundation 2010-2011 Annual Report – Sanitary Service Company
SSC, a family-owned business, was founded in 1929 by Gus Razore. Although Gus passed away in 1978 at the age of 83, he is well-remembered for his contributions to the community. Gus' son, Paul Razore, CEO of SSC, is carrying on the tradition of responding to community needs with passion and action through his gift of $25,000 to support the new library in Ferndale. According to Paul, "Libraries are essential. They are part of the foundation of any vibrant community. Libraries serve many important roles. For some, especially kids, a library can be a second home - a safe and relaxing place to go to after school to learn and connect. SSC proudly supports the local communities we serve. We have been part of the Ferndale community for many years and are pleased to be a partner in helping build this new library." SSC's gift was matched by a Community Foundation donor, which meant $50,000 for the new library. SSC's generous support of community projects and events sets a standard for all of us.
