Active Children Portland is proud to announce that we will be a 2014 Stand Together Featured Partner. The Portland Timbers worked with three amazing pillar partners (Big Brothers Big Sisters, Friends of Trees, and Portland YouthBuilders) throughout our first three years in Major League Soccer, 2011-2013, to bring awareness to and help raise money for their important causes. Starting in 2014 the Timbers and Thorns FC added six additional Stand Together partners that embody our vision of using the power of sport to change lives. We are proud to work with nine official Stand Together partners whose work is focused, effective, and has meaningful outcomes. In addition to working with these partners during Stand Together Week, through Tix for Kids, and as a beneficiary at the adidas/Timbers Team Store, the Timbers work with Active Children Portland on the following initiatives: The Timbers and Active Children Portland work together to raise money through the 5050 Raffle, and through the Active Children Portland Poetry SLAM!
