DIGGING DEEPER

Hoopin’ it Up

october_2009

 

Near the end of summer 47th Ave donated vegetables for Hoopin’ It Up, a basketball camp for under-priviledged youth.   Several southwest Portland community partners, including the Portland Police Bureau, the Housing Authority of Portland, and the Office of Neighborhood Involment’s Crime Prevention Program, team up each year to put on this camp for around 60 of Portland’s kids.  The camp’s success is heavily dependent upon community donations, and 47th Ave contributed vegetables for the Family Dinner night that capped off the week-long camp.
