By Erin Maxson & Evan Bell

JACKSON COUNTY, Ore. — An Applegate man’s dedication to a local non-profit has won the organization $5,000. Dave Moosman is a retired doctor and for the past 20 years has volunteered his time to St. Vincent de Paul.

Safeco Insurance named Moosman a community hero which comes with a $5,000 donation to St. Vincent’s. Moosman, who is 90 years old, still serves on the Board of Directors and does home visits and through all the attention remains ever humble.

You can help Mooseman win even more money for a local non-profit. The Safeco community hero with the most votes will get an extra $10,000 donation to their favorite non-profit and the runner up gets a $5,000 donation for a non-profit of their choice.
