The Oregon Council of National Women in Roofing and the Associated Roofing Contractors of Oregon and Southwest Washington are joining forces to provide Christmas gift cards to the children at Margaret Scott Elementary School, located in NE Portland, this year. Our groups have already raised over $12,000 for the school! We’re looking forward to bringing some Christmas magic to all of these families.
In the past, the Oregon NWIR team has donated toys, clothing, blankets, and other home goods to the families at Margaret Scott and other schools in the Reynolds School District through Operation Christmas Magic. Parents used to be able to come into the school a few days before Christmas, select items for each of their children under the age of 18, wrap the gifts onsite and bring them home in time for Christmas. For many of the families, our donations were their children’s only Christmas gifts.
Unfortunately, due to new Covid regulations, parents will no longer be able to come into the school and select items for their children. As a result, the school is planning to give out gift cards this year, instead. This is where our teams came in!
