Board of Directors

(Click on photo or name to send an email) 

Bob Harley, President Emeritus

I was the youngest of five siblings growing up in Easton, PA. I married Sandy in 1965, was drafted to Fort Lewis, served in Vietnam, and used the GI Bill for an education. We adopted two Korean children when living in Minnesota. We now have two granddaughters.

My education is a BS in Ceramic Engineering (UW) and an MBA in Information Management (UPS).

I worked at 3M Company for eight years (research engineer & analyst) and at Boeing for 30 years (multiple positions) ending as team leader to address common industrial engineering processes across the Boeing enterprise.

My forte has been counseling or leading teams in finance, manufacturing, engineering, quality, and human resources to a successful solution for their situation.

Over the past few years, the Ocean Shores Food Bank has developed a much stronger infrastructure in delivery and technology which is important for longevity. I believe that the food bank’s future direction is maintaining the guidelines of our mission, vision, strategic plan, and regulatory requirements.

Lorraine Hardin, Treasurer/Secretary


With a career in veterinary medicine, as a veterinary nurse and hospital manager, Lorraine is used to working with people who have very specific needs.

Lorraine Hardin brings years of budget and financial responsibility experience to the position of Treasurer of the Ocean Shores Food Bank, and looks forward to helping manage the continued health and growth of this essential organization.

The Food Bank gives her an opportunity to ensure people in our community are having their needs met without fail.

She also serves on the board of Stage West Community Theatre and directs live stage plays several times a year.

Sandy Harley, Executive Director

Sandy retired in 2010 as a Senior Vice President from KMS Financial Services Inc. in Seattle.

She and her husband, Bob, moved full time to Ocean Shores in 2014.

Sandy began work volunteer at the Ocean Shores Food Bank in 2015, and served on the Operations Committee.

In 2016, she became Assistant Director, and since 2017, has served as Executive Director.

Alisa Cross, Director

Alisa purchased her home in Ocean Shores in February 2022 and has thoroughly enjoyed joining our community.

Maintaining an interest in supporting those with food insecurity from a young age, Alisa is looking forward to making a difference here in Ocean Shores.

Alisa has a strong background in business and is currently an executive at a technology company, with a focus on supply chain, continuous improvement, program management, and  building strong teams.

Through her role on the board, Alisa is looking  to use her experience and skills to help fulfill the mission of the Ocean Shores Food Bank.

Jerry Rugh, Operations Manager

Jerry began his career as a clerk in the Customer Service Department, aka the “Complaint Department,” at Sears Roebuck & Co. when their slogan was “Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.” With this base, no matter who signed his paycheck, he built his career around the mantra, “People, no matter their station in life, deserve to be treated and valued with respect.”

In 2014, after fifty years building his career, he retired and, with his wife, moved to Ocean Shores, Washington.

In January 2016, his wife began volunteering at the Ocean Shores Food Bank. Before long, Jerry asked to take on a larger role, and ultimately as the Operations Manager.

“I love what I do,” he says. “There will come a time, though, when I am no longer capable of the physical and mental aspects of my volunteer work. Early in my career, I adopted a work style of ‘Working myself out of a job’, that is, to find my replacement so I can move on to the next issue. That is, for me, a current pursuit.

Jon Martin, Director

Interim CEO, Greater Grays Harbor Inc. | PUD Commissioner | Small Business Entrepreneur | Advocate for Rural Development


With an impressive history of civic engagement and executive leadership, Jon serves as a dynamic influence on both the board and the broader community.

Jon's dedicated service as a Public Utility District (PUD) Commissioner reflects his unwavering commitment to fostering community growth. His hands-on experience as a small business owner has given him an understanding of the challenges and needs within local economies, especially in rural settings.

A proud alumnus of Western Washington University, Jon has utilized his educational background to champion the cause of rural Washington. He's been at the forefront of securing vital grants and funding, directing these toward impactful local projects that catalyze development and enhance quality of life.

His innovative approach to problem-solving has not only invigorated local businesses but has also been pivotal in strengthening community initiatives. Jon is particularly passionate about ensuring access to nutritious food for all, supporting missions that stand by the belief that no one in our community should go hungry.
