We’re Masked – Thanks to you!
In April, Children’s Center put out an email plea for face masks to ensure that every staff member at Children’s Center had a few masks on hand to keep them safe as they help families, and also to make sure every child we serve leaves from their appointment with us with a mask for themselves and for any adults in their households.
The response was overwhelming. We received about 1,100 masks, not only from the Portland Metro area but also from a few other states!
As a result, we have been able to keep our kids and their families, as well as ourselves, masked during this difficult time. Thank you so much!
To everyone who made, dropped off, or shared masks with Children’s Center – we are so very grateful!!!
