Thanksgiving, A Time To Reflect - A Time For Sharing. Info here!
Serving warm food, warm smiles

Happy Thanksgiving!

For most families, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on everything you’ve been given, and be grateful for all that you have.

This year may be tough for many of us. But no matter how bad things are looking for you this year, there’s always someone who has it worse. So this year, take the time to give thanks for all that’s good in your own life -- and to give to others who may not share the same good fortune this Thanksgiving.

Give from the heart

Help brighten the holiday for someone in need.

  • Donate time or money to a local charity or food pantry
  • Donate a Thanksgiving basket to a neighbor in need
  • Volunteer at a local soup kitchen or homeless shelter
  • Deliver Thanksgiving meals to housebound seniors

Volunteer this holiday, and share the season!

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Become A Mentor
Change a Child's Life

Are you looking for a fun and meaningful way to give back to the community? Consider becoming a mentor and change a child's life for the better. Simply spending time with a young person once a week after school or on weekends helps kids build social and emotional skills, keep better relationships with family and peers and lowers the risk for drug or gang involvement. Plus, it's fun! You can help a kid by spending just a few hours a week doing activities you already enjoy.

Family of Friends is a family-style mentoring program. We primarily enroll kids in elementary school and match them with a mentor family, couple or individual for year-long mentoring relationships (with the option to continue longer).

We are currently looking for mentors who want to mentor a child in the Gresham area.

Please contact Allison Yoder at 503-351-5805 or ayoder@family-of-friends.org to sign up for an orientation and to learn more about Family of Friends mentoring.

Visit the Family of Friends website for more information.
