Volunteer in Portland Fall 2014

Volunteer in Portland has been busy with a number of volunteer events this fall. 

We had a successful event at our partner, Peninsula Children's Learning Center's for their 44th Birthday Party on Sunday September 14th! Our lovely Junior League ladies helped serve cake, ice cream, refreshments and supervise in the always fun bounce house! Peninsula is always grateful for the League's volunteer service as it provides a much needed break for their staff. 

We also continued our monthly Children's Book Bank Book Cleanings. At the most recent cleaning, League members cleaned enough books to fill 30 bags for 30 children in underserved schools throughout Portland.

Between the Lines Fall 2014

Between the Lines is off to a great start for the 2014-2015 League year. Our first reading took place on Saturday Sept 27th at the Coffee Creek Womens Correctional facility in the minimum security section. We recorded 27 women reading to 43 children. We received tons of positive feedback from the women, both verbally and on the surveys that we have the women fill out after the readings. Multiple women commented on how their children love to read and how this program helps the women feel connected to their children through the readings.

Between The Lines will be hosting a bookfair fundraiser on Sunday Nov 30th from 12-4 at the Barnes and Noble at Bridgeport Village. This event will be used to raise funds to by books for the program.
