Thank you to everyone who volunteered on and donated to support JLP’s Volunteer in Portland Day on October 22! We exceeded both of our goals of 100 volunteers and raising $25,000!
Please join us for the next VIP Day on October 20, 2012! We will update this page as the date gets closer.
In the meantime, please read further to see how we helped Portland area families and children in October 2011.
We had over 120 volunteers complete over 480 hours of work for our community partners Children’s Relief Nursery, Peninsula Children’s Center, Raphael House and Salvation Army’s WhiteShieldCenter. It was a HUGE success!
Here are just a few of the tasks volunteers accomplished:
Children’s Relief Nursery:
Peninsula Children’s Center
Over 30 volunteers removed a wooden fence, prepped and planted a 10’ x 15’ shade garden with the help of Master Gardener and Sustainer Judy Fenker
Thank you, again, to everyone who donated and fundraised to support VIP Day and the League. The $25,000+ that was raised will support all of JLP's programs throughout the year and help hundreds of families. Your gifts make a HUGE difference in the lives of Portland's children!
And, thank you again to all of our corporate donors: City of Portland’s Environmental Services division, Compass Coffee, East Burn grill, Fred Meyer, Home Depot Foundation, Lowe’s, North Portland Tool Library, Pacifiwild Catering, Widmer and Young’s Market.
We look forward to seeing you all at the next Volunteer in Portland Day in 2012!
