SELCO Community Credit Union is providing new funding for Looking Glass to purchase items for youth clients to support them in moving into new apartments and also items to support new parents.
Over multiple visits in recent months, local graphic artist Matt Brundage, on loan from Eugene’s Imagination International Inc, spent hours with Looking Glass students at Riverfront and Center Point Schools teaching youth about drawing techniques. In addition to showing off his amazing artistic skills, Matt brought humor and fun into the classrooms at Looking Glass.
Looking Glass Giving Trees are up at 15 locations across Eugene and Springfield. Help a youth working to overcome life challenges by getting them a gift for the holidays. Gift wishes range from socks to coats to toys. We also have a Giving Tree cash donation fund and a generous donor match offered from Ron & Marcy Sexton and Primary Residential Mortgage.
Oregon Community Credit Union’s Employee Community Giving Fund Committee donated $1,000 to Looking Glass to provide assistance with purchase of some much needed items for programs at Station 7 and Riverfront School. Items purchased included various cookware, pots and pans, plates and bowls and more as well as some newborn baby clothes purchased for Riverfront School clients who are expecting newborn babies in the coming year.
A big thank you goes out to Foresters Financial whose local members organized to make a significant in-kind donation to Looking Glass’ Counseling Program of over 100 Self-Care Kits. Our therapists provide these supplies, which included some arts and crafts tools as well as hygiene materials, to our clients to help them relax and process the stress of their lives.
