The Scholar T-Shirt Is Back Again!
NEW PRICE, SAME AMOUNT GOES BACK TO NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSE
[Full Disclosure: I hustled this little t-shirt all over town about two years ago. But the rest of my life got the best of me after a while, and I dropped the ball. However, my commitment to the cause has not diminished, and I want to cross the finish line on this project, so I'm renewing my efforts to sell every last t-shirt and donate the funds to Neighborhood House SUN Schools because, even though I dropped the ball, they've kept on quietly serving those in our community who need it most.]
A little background
When this project first got rolling (now two years ago), I was just trying to think of a creative way to make a little extra money on the side. But I can never justify making money for myself without giving back in some way. So, I spoke to a teacher I was working with at Jackson Middle School about ways a little extra cash might be helpful over there.
SUN Community Schools
He immediately pointed me to the SUN (Schools Uniting Neighborhoods) Community Schools program that’s in operation at Jackson through Neighborhood House. SUN School provides a long list of services to students and adults in the Jackson community. Furthermore, Neighborhood House operates six other SUN Community Schools in Southwest and North Portland, doing the same work of connecting communities to schools, and offering educational enrichment and social services.
Well, when you purchase one of these dope looking t-shirts (if I do say so, myself), I’m going to give $5.00 directly to the Neighborhood House SUN Schools. You get to sponsor a Scholar right here in your own community. That’s the what.
About the shirts
These shirts have been designed and printed right here in Portland, Oregon. The good folks over at Ink Screens have done an excellent job using high quality soft cotton t-shirts. They are available in adult sizes Small–XX-Large.
