11-13-2017 - Copperwest, Celilo and the Hood River County Education Foundation Step Up to Support Cascade Locks Children and Families
Copperwest Properties, Celilo Restaurant and the Hood River County Education Foundation have joined forces to ensure that after-school programs at Cascade Locks Elementary School are expanded to include more students. The school district has been running the after-school “Excel Program” since 2013, but recently sustained a 50% reduction in federal funding for the program. This has resulted in serving fewer students and more limited programming.
Maui Meyer, one of the three Partners at Celilo Restaurant and Catering and Copperwest Properties, explains, “We want to do whatever we can to help our neighbors in Cascade Locks get back on their feet after the Eagle Creek Fire. Quality after-school programs for students means parents can get back to work knowing their children are well cared for and safe.” The families of Celilo Restaurant and Catering and Copperwest Properties’ contribution of $3,500 was matched by the Hood River County Education Foundation (HRCEF).
