ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL BACK-TO-SCHOOL SHOPPING EVENT

August 2014 marked Project Lemonade’s third back-to-school free shopping event for foster youth living in the greater Portland metro area. Nearly every youth who came to the store walked away with new or nearly new denim, coat, shirts, shoes, socks, underwear and accessories such as backpacks.  We served 1700 Foster Youth in nine counties with an estimated 4000 hours of volunteer time.
