Celebrating our everyday heroes – Boy & Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area

Jun 2, 2022, 07:00 AM

When we think of everyday heroes, we think of all the people who take care of their community and those in it, like the childcare providers and educators at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area. We’re excited to recognize and celebrate all the incredible staff at the Boys & Girls clubs who provide families a safe place for kids to learn and grow. For parents, these clubs have been a lifeline, giving them a chance to work a full day knowing their child is cared for, well fed and safe.

CareOregon announced a new 10-year partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Portland Metropolitan Area, which included naming their Rockwood location the CareOregon Boys & Girls Club at Rockwood. Boys & Girls Clubs is also our official community-based organization partner for the Starlight Parade.

Terry Johnson, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area, will walk in the parade on behalf of the Portland area clubs. Watch the video below and learn more about how they show up as a hero in our community.
