Huddle Up For Kids Update: November 23, 2015
Thank you to all our partners and supporters last month for rallying around Huddle Up for Kids! At Safeway and Albertsons locations around Oregon and Washington, we raised $100,000! Proceeds from Huddle Up for Kids benefit emerging student leaders who plan to attend an Oregon university, college or trade school.
We appreciate how you’ve assisted us in bridging the education gap for our local youth!
Did you know low income kids are six times more likely to drop out of high school?
In 2014 Joey Harrington created a unique scholarship/mentoring program for Oregon high school students in need. The Oregon Community Quarterback Scholarship is a renewable four-year collegiate scholarship program for Oregon high school seniors who are emerging leaders, and plan to attend an Oregon university, college or trade school. The program is intended to facilitate the growth of promising leaders in the state of Oregon by developing the skills needed to flourish their local communities.
For the month of October we’re joinging forces with former quarterbacks in the state of Oregon and Washington; Safeway; and Friends of Children to raise funds for the Oregon Community Quarterback Scholarship. We believe investing in Oregon youth is an investment in all of our futures. Right now there are students who need our encouragement, guidance, and financial assistance to pursue higher education. Let’s step in and provide that help.
