For more than 30 years, Mt. Hood Community College students have benefited from the efforts of a group of generous volunteers known as the Neighborhood Saints.
Since its creation in 1976, the Neighborhood Saints have helped thousands of students secure emergency loans with funds raised through sales at the Saints Thrift Store.
Earlier this fall, the officers of the Neighborhood Saints determined the thrift store and organization would end operations.
In recognition of their dedication to the community, the College is hosting a reception to honor the Neighborhood Saints for their many years of service to MHCC and its students.
The reception will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 11, from 4 to 5:15 p.m. in the Town and Gown Room on MHCC's Gresham Campus.
This event is free and open to the public. Past and present members of the Neighborhood Saints as well as their families are invited to attend the celebration.
Please RSVP to Barbara Howell at 503-491-7204 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Feb. 9.
