Unitus Community Credit Union has partnered with the Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns FC to bring memorable experiences to children and their families who are battling or have battled unfortunate illness.
“The Timbers and Thorns have been such an important part of Portland’s identity, bringing, joy, excitement, and inspiration to our city. While we stand in awe of their success on the field, it is their countless off-the-field efforts to improve our community that make this partnership such a natural fit for Unitus.” – Steven Stapp, President/CEO of Unitus
Dream Come True Program
The award-winning Dream Come True program aims to fulfill a child’s dream during select Timbers and Thorns home games. The program will treat young children to unforgettable experiences at the new Providence Park.
Rose City Readers Program
This new partnership will also include support of the Thorn’s Stand Together community-based initiatives, Rose City Readers. This program aims to magnify the importance of elementary school aged children reading at grade level and to inspire kids to read every day, through reading assemblies and classroom visits with Timber Joey and athletes.
