BENEFITING: Multnomah Education Service District Foundation
As many of you know, there is a program here in Oregon called Outdoor School that takes all 6th graders in the Portland region out into the woods for one week. They live in cabins and study science outside all day - plants, animals, soil, water, and conservation. High school students volunteer one week of their time to serve as the teachers and mentors of the younger students. This program has been life-changing for generations of Portlanders, not least of all for my own two daughters, Kelly and Claire. Outdoor School is being cut in half this year due to budget issues. I would like nothing more for my birthday than to raise money to help save this program. Thank you for your generosity!
