Optimists, Country Financial donate to We Dine Together
Former Oregon City Commissioner Brian Shaw's birthday GoFundMe fundraiser for We Dine Together raised $1,100 through the Optimist Club.
At Oregon City High School, Country Financial delivered their check for $2,500 while the Optimists delivered theirs on Sept. 4.
OCHS graduate Shaylee Cooper and OCPD school resource officer, David Plummer, started the We Dine Together club about three years ago.
In partnership with Be Strong, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing youth bullying and isolation, We Dine Together quickly became the most popular club at OCHS by bringing together kids who previously had been eating alone.
We Dine Together continued to grow, with upward of 100 students attending the group's meetings. OCHS students continue to lead the club this year through virtual meetings.
