Q & A

Craft supplies, other supplies for the PovertyBridge Opportunity Conference

PovertyBridge is a non-profit organization that approaches poverty on a personal level by connecting each person they work with to a Navigator who helps them manage crises, finds resources they need, and offers a source of stability. PovertyBridge's work in Portland kicks off this weekend with an Opportunity Conference, and we could use some help.

We have an unexpectedly large number of children of all ages we will be caring for while their parents attend the conference, and we need more craft supplies. If you have supplies that you can donate to us, please contact Jane Waddell ([email protected]).
