There are more than 13,000 foster children in the state of Oregon. Due to unfortunate budget cuts, the Department of Human Services (DHS) no longer has clothing to provide to our foster children. Foster families must make do with what they currently have.
Project Lemonade intends to help these families out, and aims to do it in style. For three weeks this summer, August 20 through September 7, 2012, foster kids have the opportunity to shop for back to school outfits–shirts, shoes, jeans, bags and accessories at absolutely no cost. Project Lemonade will serve over 2,000 school-aged foster children (ages 5 – 20) from Portland and greater Multnomah County.
She will go shopping with you anytime.
|So. Many. Hangers.|
|Sad stats. Let’s make a difference.|
What a wonderful idea! I wish I lived closer so I could help there with you!
