p:earblossoms "Forage" Sucess!
1% from all sales go to p:ear programs
Join us at City Hall on Thursday July 18th, from 12pm – 2pm for the unveiling of “Destiny’s Child,” a 16’ multi-piece mural of future Tennis hall-of-famer, Serena Williams, made by p:ear youth and renowned artist, Jesse Hazelip.
It was an incredible night of support, raising $495,000 for our vital programs for our community’s homeless youth! Your belief in the futures of these valuable but vulnerable young folk is what makes our work possible. As the number of young people who walk through our doors continues to grow rapidly, your investment is vital to help instill safety, nourishment and learning opportunities.
Special thanks go to Kim Stafford, Oregon Poet Laureate, for reading his beautiful poem, “Forage,” and to Bryan Steelman of Por Que No, for being the recipient of the 2019 Community Partnership Award. We are so grateful!
