Restaurants across Clackamas County participate in fundraiser to aid local historical sites, museums

COURTESY PHOTO - Philip Foster Farm in Eagle Creek, which connects participants of all ages with pioneer experiences, is one of the locations that will benefit from the upcoming 'Takeout for History' program.

Leaders at historical sites across Clackamas County have teamed up with multiple restaurants to raise money.

Through the Clackamas County Heritage Council's "Take Out for History" program, customers at participating restaurants can generate funds for locations that share Oregon and Clackamas County's history. Many of the county's museums and other historical sites are temporarily closed to facilitate social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak, and a portion of each order will be donated to the Heritage Council during the event.

The fundraiser runs from Monday, May 11, through Sunday, May 17, and those who wish to participate should order from the restaurant of their choice in-person or via phone. Online orders will not count toward the fundraiser.
