Sixth Grader Organizes Sock Drive For Janus Youth

Eleven-year old Quentin Brown organized a winter sock drive at his school, Cascade Heights Public Charter School, collecting 582 pairs of socks for our youth. This is his second year organizing the sock drive.

Last year, Janus awarded Quentin the “Stars for Kids Award” for his contributions to our youth. Each year on his birthday, Quentin asks family members to give him gifts that he can donate to Portland’s homeless youth. Rather than getting toys and games, Quentin gets socks, water bottles, hats and scarfs that he packs up in a bin and brings down to the Janus administrative office. Last year, he even brought a little piggy bank with all of his savings and gave it to Janus. He has been doing this for seven years now. By thinking of the needs of others, he sets an example for his peers, family and community, showing the impact kids have on helping other kids. Quentin demonstrates that acts of kindness can be cultivated at a young age.

Play Golf And Support Janus Youth!

Join us for a fun-filled afternoon of golf, contests, awards, lunch and dinner at the Riverside Golf & Country Club for the The Herm Gilliam Memorial Golf Tournament for Kids on August 13th.

More than a great afternoon of golf, the Herm Gilliam Memorial Golf Tournament for Kids is about changing lives and building futures for 6,000 youth each year. A member of the Trail Blazers 1976-77 NBA Championship Team, Herm served on Janus' Board of Directors and chaired our Scholarship Fund. With his passing, the community lost a true friend and one of its greatest treasures.
