From July 6 until August 21
Through the power of relationships, Friends of the Children - Portland addresses critical societal challenges and drives greater equity, justice, and connection for the youth in our community who need us the most. Friends of the Children - Portland currently provides over 500 youth with salaried, professional mentors for their entire childhood, from kindergarten through high school graduation.
2020 has changed the way our youth learn. They still need supplies and our mentors are helping with distance learning in the best way they know how. Our kids will need supplies for digital learning or when they return to the classrooms. Please help by hosting a drive for our youth in this uncertain educational year.
Gift certificates to Fred Meyer, Bi-Mart, Amazon, or any stores with school supplies. Haircut gift certificates or restaurant gift certificates can help with teenagers self-esteem and socializing (safely).
