The Spot, a new doughnut delivery service in Hermiston, got a chance to deliver some sweetness to employees of Good Shepherd Health Care System on Sept. 11.

The business was chosen as part of Columbia Bank's Pass It On Project, which donates money to local businesses so that they can "pay it forward" to someone else in town. Ray Diaz, a co-owner of The Spot with his wife McKenzie Diaz, said in a post on The Spot's Facebook page that they decided delivering free doughnuts to the hospital was a good way to thank health care workers for their sacrifices during the pandemic.

"Thank you guys for helping our community maintain good physical and mental health during this nationwide crisis," he wrote to Good Shepherd. "Your long hours and choice to give your very best serving this community is appreciated!"
