It will be a great night of fun action! Get your tickets today–last time it sold out.
Our Klahre House students love building things like birdhouses and planters, but the teacher whose tools they were using left. They have a wish list of tools, and donors have already started dropping off treasures from sheds and garages. How about joining them?
We usually don’t bring up the Employee of the Month on our website, but Ralph Kupersmith is a special case. At The Next Door, he has been a Case Manager, Foster Parent Trainer, Recruiter, and Certifier, Facilities Manager, Bus Driver, and several things we don’t have titles for. Ralph can be counted on to fill in wherever he’s needed, and he has a beautiful attitude toward the most difficult of children. He sees them as children.
The Next Door is pleased to honor Dennis Carlson as our 2012 Volunteer of the Year. As a master gardener, Dennis has been instrumental in starting both the Klahre House School Garden and the Raices/Roots Community Garden. These vegetable gardens have benefited Klahre House students and community members. Dennis has put in hundreds of hours teaching gardening skills and working in the gardens.
Would you like to get into the holiday spirit by doing a good deed? We’ve got an idea for you:
Here’s the deal: when you buy a pair of Keen shoes or boots at Footwise Hood River, they’ll give you a FREE pair of Keens socks AND donate a pair of Keen socks to our foster kids at The Next Door. We’re going to put them in their holiday gifts. It’s win-win-win!
November 9-25 only.
