Twice a year, HDP offers personalized banners that hang throughout Downtown to celebrate the season and raise money for local charities. All proceeds from this fundraiser are donated to a new organization every year. Supporters can purchase a message to be displayed on one or both sides of the banner, and can even donate more to keep their banner as a keepsake forever. This is a great opportunity to surprise a loved one with a special message, express your gratitude for someone in the community, or declare your love for Downtown Hillsboro!
We are still accepting banner dedications outside of these parameters, so feel free to celebrate anyone in your life who deserves a little love this season, even your Hillsboro community as a whole!
Greater than supports students effected by social inequities that can disrupt learning:
"At Greater Than, we strive to demonstrate that there is a different way to approach the longstanding inequities in our education system. We believe that the broader community as a whole needs to come together to meet the needs of students and families and allow schools and teachers to focus on what they do best: facilitate learning. When a community-based organization can coordinate programs, partners, and help families meet their basic household needs, it enables a school environment to focus on the core purpose of teaching."
They are doing amazing work, right in our backyard:
"Downtown Hillsboro Lincoln Street Elementary serves 400 students through 6th grade. Over 62% are emerging bilingual students, most of whom speak Spanish as a first language. Lincoln Street students have persistently had the lowest academic success rates in the district. We began working with Lincoln Street students in 2021 and are currently growing our program to Evergreen Middle School to serve 7th and 8th graders and their families."
BANNERS: There are 94 message slots available, with each donation being for one side of a banner. You are welcome to purchase both sides of the banner. There will be an additional cost to keep the banner.
