Taylor Graham was the recipient of a Community Service Award on Jan. 25, presented to him by the Oregon Dunes Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.

To be nominated for this award the recipient must have contributed to the community in an outstanding manner through voluntary heroic, civic or benevolent service, or by organizing or participating in community activities.

At age 7, Graham came up with the idea to sell his used books to buy food for the hungry. This idea blossomed into a seven-year endeavor to collect used books, sell them in a weekend-long sale and use the proceeds to buy food for Florence Food Share.

Grahamís hard work has raised more than $65,000 in the seven years he has dedicated to this project.
