“If it wasn’t for Oregon Tradeswomen, and attending your Career Fair, I don’t know where I would be or what I would have done. You truly helped change the lives of my children and my life, forever. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.”

A MESSAGE FROM OREGON TRADESWOMEN’S EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Thank you for caring about the work we do at Oregon Tradeswomen.

Like many other nonprofits, Oregon Tradeswomen is working to find ways to ensure that our work with community, industry, and the people we serve is not interrupted during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

During the next few weeks, our team is working remotely. We’re doing our part to keep our staff, families, and community safe.

We are committed to providing services to the community we serve and to continue offering our life-changing programs. During this unprecedented time, we anticipate the need for increased financial support, as we have already begun to see layoffs and shutdowns across our community.

While you are doing all you can do to keep safe and well, we ask you to consider making an additional gift to Oregon Tradeswomen today, to help us continue to help others. Your gift will support emergency funds for program participants and graduates who rely on Oregon Tradeswomen’s services, programming and support.

In these uncertain times, one thing is definite – we must be kind and good to ourselves and one another. We must continue to believe in the power of collective good and the goodness of one another.

Thank you for all you are doing in big ways and small, and thank you for your continued support of our work and mission at Oregon Tradeswomen.

With much gratitude,
