Every dollar raised for JLP CAREs supports the mission of Junior League of Portland. Some of the ways your contribution impacts our community include:
$25 covers the cost for a family in our Between the Lines program - to strengthen the connection between parent and child when separated due to incarceration or military deployment.
$50 covers the cost of providing undergarments to two recently rescued survivors of human trafficking since their undergarments are generally needed as evidence in criminal cases.
$100 feeds 15-20 families at one of our Ronald McDonald House dinners – providing nourishment and support to families caring for sick children.

The Junior League of Portland is gearing up for its 4th JLP CAREs, our unique event that combines fund development with community service.
At JLP CAREs (Community Action and Revitalization Event), JLP members, family, friendsand supporters unite to raise funds to support JLP by being sponsored for their volunteer hours while they complete half-day projects that enhance the services and facilities of essential Portland community organizations… just like a volunteer-a-thon!

Between the Lines had a Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF) Reading/Tour on October 13, 2012. The reading at Coffee Creek was a success! We offered readings for 25 mothers who read to 49 children. Many were first time readers and it seemed all enjoyed their experience.
The Between the Lines Committee also had a very busy holiday season! The group went to Santiam Correctional Facility in early November. The committee also wrapped and mailed books with CDs to the children who were read to from Santiam and CCCF.
In December, Between the Lines hosted a Book Fair at the Barnes & Noble at Bridgeport Village, on Saturday, December 8 from 11:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.
