Inukai Family Boys & Girls Club Depave Work Party

August 25 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Share

Join Depave and our friends at Inukai Boys & Girls Club in Hillsboro to rip up some pavement and transform the children’s play area from a drab parking lot to a magical space.

The Club, located near downtown Hillsboro, offers a host of after school and summer programs for youth ages 6-18. The Club is a nonprofit youth development and community service agency serving an average of 200 youth per day, with low-income and people of color making up around 80% of the population served.

Staff and members are eager to improve safety and make the space more welcoming and functional. “I couldn’t possibly be more excited about this project, the impact it will have, and that we get to include our community and families in the process! We at Inukai have been trying to get something done with that space for years now, and it means the world to me that Depave stepped in to make it happen! This project is critically needed to give our youth a safe, accessible, place to play in nature, something that has limited access at our Club and surrounding neighborhood.” – Rachel Schutz, Area Director of Youth, Family, & Trauma Informed Services and The Inukai Family Club

Special thanks to Clean Water Services and Hillsboro Water Department for supporting this project!
