What are you doing for dinner tonight?
Tigard residents are invited to a barbecue dinner hosted by the University of Phoenix today from 4:30 to 6 p.m. for a $5 donation. All proceeds will benefit the Schoolhouse Supplies.
University of Phoenix Oregon Campus is partnering with the KGW School Supply Drive to collect school supplies for more than 5,000 children in the community. Supplies are being accepted now through Monday, Sept. 5.
'University of Phoenix strives to remove barriers to higher education,' said University of Phoenix Oregon Campus Director Flint Holland. 'Schoolhouse Supplies is a leader in providing students with the school supplies they need to succeed. We are honored to partner with them to serve our local youth and help put them on the path to higher education.'
Community members interested in donating can bring supplies to any University of Phoenix Oregon location. Supplies most students need include: pencils, scissors, erasers, glue sticks, crayons, markers, colored pencils and notebook paper. University of Phoenix has locations in Clackamas, Hillsboro, Salem, Tigard and Vancouver.
