The Moreau Center’s service and justice coordinators (SJCs) are thrilled to again be partnering with Because People Matter to provide Thanksgiving meal baskets to families in need in North Portland, according to Sophie Charles, Moreau Center. In past years, the partnership relied on student-donated meal points to provide the fixings for Thanksgiving meal baskets for over 200 North Portland families. This year, with most students living off-campus, there needs to be a new fundraising strategy.
The Moreau Center is calling on students, faculty, staff, and extended UP family to join in supporting our valuable community partner as well as neighbors in need this Thanksgiving season by contributing to Because People Matter’s GoFundMe campaign using this link between now and November 15. You’ll have the option to sponsor your favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal or an entire Thanksgiving meal spread, whatever works for you.
Thanks for supporting our North Portland neighbors this Thanksgiving season. If you have any questions, please contact Charles at firstname.lastname@example.org.
