In the month of June, Rick’s sold over 75,000 fence boards. With their commitment to donating $.25 per board that amounted to almost $20,000 in funds raised. But the original goal was $25,000, and getting so close but not all the way there was not good enough for owner and CEO Rick Stanley:
“We knew 100,000 boards in one month was a big goal, but we wanted to make a big impact right now. I am ready to help out any way I can, so I’m going to personally make up the difference so we can donate the full $25,000.”
— Rick Stanley, CEO
The $25,000 donation will be split between three organizations serving Rick’s local communities.
Our donations will benefit:
Impact NW’s mission is to prevent homelessness by partnering with people as they navigate their journey to stability and opportunity. Since the COVID-19 crisis began, all Impact NW services have been creatively transitioned to ensure all families are served remotely including phone check-ins, consistent and culturally-specific food boxes, providing seniors with safe transportation, and more. Consider how you may also be able to help contribute essential items directly to the organization.
The Maurice Lucas Foundation is named after Maurice Lucas, a former Portland Trail Blazer and 1977 NBA champion. In memory of his late father, David Lucas now heads this foundation whose goal is to promote resilience, mentorships, and education resources for students across Portland Public Schools. At this time, they are working to help students and their parents navigate the needs of at home learning with tutoring, and academic and emotional support.
The Three Rivers Community Foundation (3RCF) announced an emergency fund to support nonprofit organizations in Benton and Franklin, Washington counties whose programs and services have been impacted by the current crisis. The emergency fund will support urgent and immediate needs for nonprofits that provide critical community services now and in the future.
