ABOUT #CAMAS UNITES
As communities around the world navigate these unprecedented times, the principle on which our locally owned business was founded stands true - Incredible PR1DE for our Papermaker family. In support of our community, Papermaker Pride is launching a #CamasUnites campaign.
Our goal is to unite the city of Camas in a time of great turmoil and need. With over 1,000 students in our community who rely on our school breakfast and lunch program, the closing of Camas School District puts tremendous pressure on all of our families to provide for our children. Papermaker Pride is working to unite the city of Camas in support of our families most impacted by this pandemic.
We are selling a combination of T-shirts, sweatshirts, and custom flags to families, individuals and businesses in Camas. 100% of the profit from #CamasUnites merchandise and monetary donations will be donated to the Camas Schools Backpack Program and Family-Community Resource Center. The Backpack Program provides easily prepared or ready-to-eat food items to students when schools are not serving meals. The Camas Family Community Resource Center provides non-perishable food, household/hygiene items, school supplies, clothing, and essential services to families in need. Through the #CamasUnites Campaign, we hope to support these two organizations in their efforts to serve Camas families.
THE WEEKEND BACKPACK PROGRAM
Did you know? More than 1,000 children in Camas get subsidized nutrition during the week in our schools. The Weekend Backpack Program helps make sure that the neediest among them don't go hungry over the weekend, but supplies are low. Currently there is a waiting list for children to be fed on the weekends.
THE FAMILY-COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER (FCRC)
THE FCRC is a place where students and families of Camas School District can find help! They provide resources and support for daily and long-term challenges including a food pantry, school supplies, clothing, personal hygiene items, laundry facilities, foster care, and housing. Our goal is to remove the barriers to helping all children succeed.
