FORKS — The Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction will be online this year.

The 56th annual, two-day event was canceled because of COVID-19 precautions, so the board decided to hold it online.

The board said members wanted graduating seniors “to know now more than ever that their community cares. We do not want them to go off into this world empty-handed.

“This is a call to action to come together and give these kids the love and support they deserve, especially in times of adversity and uncertainty,” the board said in a press release.

The auction will begin Tuesday and extend through Saturday on the Facebook group page QVSA 2020.

Monetary donations can be made at qvsa.org.

The annual fundraiser brings in money for all Forks High School graduates, who can apply for scholarships to business school, trade school, beauty school or college at graduation, or any time in the future. The auction is organized by members of the graduating class.

Monetary donations can be made at qvsa.org. Cash or checks can be dropped off at Dahlgren Logging, Inc. or Jerry’s Small Engines & Rentals, or checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 976 Forks, WA 98331.
