Back-to-School BBQ

With the start of school coming up soon, the Newport HELP Center is getting ready to host it’s Back-to-School BBQ event, which provides school supplies to students in need.  This years event will be held on Tuesday, August 28th at the Yaquina View School gym.

Volunteers are an integral part of the success of this event. Volunteers are needed in two different shifts, from 10:30-2 and from 3:30-7.  Throughout the day we will need 30 volunteers to help as personal shoppers, meal servers, info booth attendants, clothing organizers, and restockers.

Donations of backpacks for all ages are also needed. Backpacks can be dropped off in Newport at Washington Federal bank or West Coast Bank, or at the Newport HELP Center. The center is also in need of new or gently used elementary-aged clothing.

If you are interested in donating or volunteering during the event please contact the Newport HELP Center at (541) 574-5824
