We are very excited to announce that the 107 Independent Supporters’ Trust of the Timbers Army has donated $5000 to Active Children Portland.
“The 107 Independent Supporters Trust and the Timbers Army are proud to support and partner with Active Children Portland. We support soccer from the grassroots to the highest professional level and believe that sport can transform and empower the community that we all love. Active Children Portland fits well with our goals as their work to support academics and healthy after-school activities through soccer will leave longstanding positive impacts on the next generation.”
– Scott Van Swearingen, President, 107 Independent Supporters Trust
The 107IST have had a relationship with Active Children Portland dating back to our inception, through supporting our fundraising efforts and volunteering. This past August during our Kilts and Plaids campaign, the Army showed their support by wearing plaid to the August 31st game. They also made a one of a kind AC PDX t-shirt that they sold to raise support for us. On top of all these wonderful things, we had a rail-banner that read ‘Support AC PDX’ hung in front of the Army during the August 31st game against the rapids.
There is no finer supporters group in the entire country and we are delighted to have them championing our cause.
