Coats for Kids @ Rigler Elementary

The weather is getting colder here in Portland, and while that brings the holidays and more time to spend with family, it also presents challenges to members of our community - especially our youngest community members who have to brave the cold weather without a warm jacket.

In raising a modest sum of money, we'll be able to ensure that community children have a warm journey to and from school during the winter months, and are able to focus on the important work of learning! We are excited to partner with Burlington Coat Factory this year to ensure that every $15 we're able to raise will allow us to purchase a winter coat for a child at Rigler Elementary, where 84.5% of children qualify for free or reduced lunch.

In making a donation, you're investing in healthy, educated children and easing the burden on some of our most disadvantaged community members.
