New AmeriCorps intern for PPR
PPR will benefit exponentially from having an AmeriCorps Intern to work on its numerous programs. AmeriCorps is an awesome resource for many non-profits: for $5400, there is a full-time employee who is genuinely interested in what that organization is doing. This AmeriCorps intern works for 10 months, 40 hours a week. To qualify, PPR must work towards building a more resilient community, which it does through OWL (Overnight Winter Lodging), PHC (Project Homeless Connect) and veterans support programs.

Timberland Regional Library
Summer Books Program at TRL
Do you remember your first very own book? TRL hosts a popular summer reading program every year. Last year they started giving out books as awards to children who finish the program—for many children, these are the very first books of their own. TRL has a gap this year between available funds and the number of books needed. Help them raise the funds for this district-wide program.

Community Beach Cleanup
Tsunami Citizen Science
Support citizen science on the ocean beach with CBC and help Biologist Russ Lewis keep a truck gassed up and running for his research. Biologist Russ Lewis has been collecting beach trash for years for Grassroots Garbage Gang, now a program of Community Beach Cleanup.
Since the Tohoku Quake in 2011, Russ has made more than 900 trips, specifically noting, classifying and weighing all Japanese-sourced debris that comes to this beach. Many scientists use his data to plot ocean circulation and the movement of western Pacific species to our coast. Help CBC sponsor Russ’s unique beach study so that he can reach 1000 trips.
