Brown Bag Distribution for The Urban League!
Help us Support Urban League Services!
We are working in partnership with a local College Student who has a passion for serving to dedicate this Brown Bag Collection to support the Urban League. The Urban League is a national organization which provides a Roadmap To Equality for African Americans and others through partnerships with a variety of corporations, community leaders, governmental and civic institutions. Because of the support of others they are able to stand on the front line of strengthening communities and diffusing racial tensions.
On Saturday, April 22, at 11:00am we plan to distribute empty bags in a local neighborhood near our Church with a list attached of items needed by low-income and struggling African-American families in the Portland-Metro area. We will work in groups to place the empty bags on porches in our area, asking for neighbors to fill the bags with items listed as they are willing and able.
We will gather at Prince of Peace a week later on Saturday, April 29, at 11:00am to go out in groups to pick up the filled bags left by our neighbors. The following week we will sort, organize, and then deliver the items to The Urban League.
