the relationship  between
  kids, cops, and the community

December 2016
Beaverton PAL Update
From the Executive Director...

The holiday season is upon us!  It's easy to tell that it's nearly winter break by the excitement level of our youth at PAL.  While it's a fun time of year, it can also be stressful for our families when making ends meet is hard, let alone saving extra for holiday gifts.

We are so fortunate to have several community groups looking out for PAL by adopting families, hosting giving trees, and stuffing stockings to ensure each of our kids has a special holiday!  Thank you to the Beaverton Police Department, Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Wells Fargo, and seniors at the Elsie Stuhr Center for your generosity!

Have a safe and happy holiday!

#OregoniansGive Update
Giving Tuesday Success!
Thanks to everyone who supported our Giving Tuesday campaign!  Oregonians Give was a state-wide success, with over 170 organizations participating.  PAL raised over $1,500 in support of our programming!

If you are looking for an end-of-the year giving opportunity, PAL is a great investment!  As always, your gift is tax-deductible and your dollars benefit youth here in Beaverton.

Weather Reminder
PAL programming closure runs in-line with the Beaverton School District.  If schools are closed, PAL is closed.  In the event that weather is inclement, but school is open, PAL will be open due to busses running.  December 14, 2016 provided a unique situation, with busses running late, but PAL team members will always make certain that all youth are safe and have transportation home.  Team members will communicate with parents and guardians when these situations arise.
PAL memberships are still available for this school year!  Please contact Vickie if you would like more information.
