Many of you asked what more could be done to support our families during this pandemic- and PAT leaders came together to launch a matching campaign with the Coronavirus Relief Fund for Portland Public Schools Students and Families.
We offered up to $40,000 in matching funds….and in just 10 days we raised $38,005, which we will match for almost $80,000 in total! Thanks to you for helping build this momentum in our community, and to all the educators who dug deep and donated to this important effort. It’s impressive that the average educator contribution was $120.
This is a potent reminder that especially in the worst of times, we always come together for our students, especially those most impacted. If you know of a family in need, please work with your site’s relief fund coordinator. If you don’t know who that is, ask your administrator.
