The Trauma Intervention Program (TIP) is a national voluntary nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring that those who are emotionally traumatized in emergency situations receive the assistance they need. To accomplish that goal, TIP works closely with local communities to establish emergency services volunteer programs. In these programs, well-trained citizen volunteers are available on a 24-hour, 365-day basis to be called to emergency scenes to assist family members, witnesses, and other bystanders who the emergency system often must leave behind.
The Portland/Vancouver TIP Chapter currently has over 200 volunteers that responded to 2,007 calls last year and served 12,214 citizens the Portland and Vancouver area. This chapter has served Multnomah, Clark, and Clackamas counties for over sixteen years and has just expanded into Sandy, Oregon. These dedicated volunteers don’t only offer their time during a crisis, but also help to organize annual fundraising events to benefit and celebrate TIP.
And you, your family, and friends are cordially invited to take part in the next upcoming TIP fundraising event!
On Thursday, April 8, 2010, TIP will be partnering with the Lincoln restaurant located at 3808 N. Williams Avenue in Portland, Oregon for a night of fun and food! From 5:30 pm until close, the Lincoln restaurant will generously donate 10% of their profits to the Portland/Vancouver TIP Chapter. Click here to view the Lincoln restaurant’s delicious dinner menu.
Donated funds from the Lincoln restaurant to the Portland/Vancouver TIP Chapter will be used to purchase grief literature and supplies that TIP volunteers carry with them when responding to citizens in crisis.
Plan ahead to treat yourself and family to a night out for dinner at the Lincoln restaurant on Thursday and support a worthy cause!
