We’ve had the honor of hosting the Beaverton Education Foundation’s Fall Phone-a-thon!
There was an electric buzz in the air as over 300 students filled our beautiful Beaverton, Oregon, office after hours this week. BEF provides financial support for K-12 educational activities such as clubs and summer programs, and these student volunteers dialed away, asking members of the community for donations to help their local schools. A number of Ruby volunteers were also standing by to lend encouragement, coaching opportunities, and their phone expertise to these impressive students.
In their five nights at Ruby, the volunteers raised a whopping $94,000 — the largest phone-a-thon pledges since 2010!
We are so grateful to be able to Create Community in Beaverton, and we can’t wait to do it again next year!
