School Supply Drive

Hello Friends,

As most of you know the school year is around the corner! Many teachers and employees in schools often times find themselves having to purchase school supplies to teach their lessons.This is a huge burden on our school systems and more importantly our families in under-served populations.

The Portland Pigs Rugby Club with the support of The Station and Widmer Bros. Brewery has decided to host a school supply drive to alleviate this burden. Participants will do the following.
1) Find a backpack or reusable bag
2) Fill it with $5 in School supplies 
3) Bring it to The Station on the day of the event and exchange it for BEER !!!!

The following are the supplies that are in highest demand.
1) Color Pencils
2) Crayons
3) Folders and Dividers
4) Staples
5) Pens and Pencils

When you bring in your bag of supplies you will receive a wristband for some delicious, ever-flowing Widmer Bros. Beer. Bring your friends, family, coworkers etc... all are welcome.

The proceeds are going to various SUN programs in East County. SUN(Schools Uniting Neighborhoods) is a before and after school program that does community outreach and support.
     The Event will be held at the Station from 7pm-10pm on Saturday Aug 22nd,-122.6377267,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x8afef9f51c461927
