FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

It is with the greatest excitement and honor to announce that MECCA has been selected to receive an important grant from Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality. Funds from this grant will allow us to grow our Teacher Resource Center, a program which provides free art supplies to educators and non-profits. We will also partner with 15th Night’s Rapid Access Network to provide school supplies to unhoused students in our community.

Thank you to the Department of Environmental Quality for your recognition and support of MECCA’s mission to keep materials out of the waste stream in creative and innovative ways.
