About Boys & Girls Aid Society
This year, Lisa selected the Boys & Girls Aid Society Program. The Boys & Girls Aid. Founded in 1885, Boys & Girls Aid is the oldest child welfare agency in Oregon. Currently, they are celebrating our 130th anniversary, a remarkable milestone.
Boys & Girls Aid was originally founded to solve the problem of abandoned children living on the streets of Portland Without a family to raise them, it was becoming clear that something needed to be done. The articles of incorporation read that the purpose of Boys &Girls Aid was “to improve the condition of the homeless, neglected, and abused children in the State of Oregon.” Under the leadership of Thomas Eliot and the support of Simeon G. Reed and Henry L. Pittock, the board of directors was formed. Included were some of Portland’s elite; Henry Corbett, William Ladd, Frank E. Beach and P.A. Marquam to name a few.
This is an organization that is very dear to Lisa, and 100 percent of the funds from the Desserts for Dreams will go to this worthwhile program.
Come help support an awesome cause. And a special thank you to the wonderful restaurants, bakeries, and the Eugene Hilton.
