Service Learning Project
This year our service learning project is to help Northwest Pilot Project (NWPP). NWPP helps low income senior citizens find and keep affordable housing in downtown Portland. We will be helping the organization by collecting much needed items such as kitchen and bath towels, hygiene supplies and socks. We also make valentine and spring cards for the seniors. Our service helps the clients of NWPP to feel special and to know someone is thinking of them. You can find information about NWPP on their website www.nwpilotproject.org.
