Saturday December 21 from 1PM to 4PM
Sunday December 22 from 12PM to 2PM
The distribution will take place at Century High School which is located at 2000 SE Century Blvd, Hillsboro, OR. You will need to enter the high school from Century Blvd by the football field and follow the SCOTTY Foundation signs to go behind the high school. Do NOT enter by the tennis courts. We will have a one-way drive-thru for gift pickups.
Please keep the following things in mind when coming to pick up your gifts:
1. As always, please do not open and go through your bags while in the line. There is simply not enough room or time for others to drive through and get their items when this happens.
2. PLEASE BRING THE PROVIDER ID NUMBER THAT YOU USED TO SUBMIT YOUR GIFTS WITH YOU. This number should have been asked on your submission form.
3. As always, please remember that our gift drive is done 100% with donations. Although we attempt to get every child sponsored with at least one item that they requested, we simply cannot guarantee that all items requested were received (especially in the case of gift cards). If your bag contains items not requested, this is simply because your requested item did not come in and we gave what we felt a child of that age would enjoy and wanted to ensure each child received three gifts each.
We hope everyone enjoys the holiday and we look forward to next year!
The SCOTTY Foundation
SCOTTY - Sponsoring Children Of Today, Tomorrow & Yesterday. Our core belief is that everyone, regardless of age, can positively impact the life of a child. Each year we focus on the following two great causes:
In the Fall/Winter of each year, our foundation aims towards the foster care system. Each year thousands of children are placed in foster care. Foster parents do receive financial assistance to cover a foster child's basic living necessities, but there are no extra funds given to these families during the holiday season. Not only can this result in a financial hardship for the foster family, it can also deny a child who has known only pain and neglect, the childhood magic of the holidays. The children placed in foster homes may have never opened a gift waiting for them under a tree on Christmas morning. It is through the generosity of others that we are able to support these foster homes/children during the holiday season.
Our focus is to ease the financial hardship that some foster parents may feel during the holidays, allowing the children placed in their care a momentary reprieve from life's adversities. Our commitment is to participate year after year and honor the memory of Scotty by never giving up on a child's need to feel special.
In the Spring/Summer of each year (and throughout the year when needed), our foundation switches gears as we continue with our helmet awareness campaign. Although helmet laws are in place in our area - these laws are simply not enforced, leaving the use of helmets as a "choice" (especially to those 16 and over). Our mission is to reach out to the youth/young adults to raise awareness of the impact helmet safety plays. The namesake of our organization passed away as a result of this "choice" and it is our hope to spread the awareness and helmets to as many as possible that are willing to make the "choice" for their safety.
