I am on the Board of Friends of Oregon School for the Deaf (friendsofosd.org) and very happy to be able to serve this cause. We fund innovative projects that serve the students at OSD and which the school's budget cannot afford. Currently, we are raising money for a computer controlled digital router for the Career Technical Education Program. Training on this machine will allow our students to become instantly employable in good paying jobs right out of high school. Given the high unemployment and underemployment rate among deaf and hearing-impaired adults, this digital router will have an immediate, positive effect on OSD's graduates. Please find it in your hearts to give whatever you can afford.
