MEDFORD, Ore. — On Thursday, students of Southern Oregon University (SOU) are helping to raise money for foster workers and support vulnerable children by hosting a fundraiser at MOD Pizza in Medford.

Between 10:30 a.m. and 10 p.m. on Thursday, 20 percent of the proceeds from MOD patrons who show the fundraiser flyer goes directly to Every Child, a non-profit that works to bridge the gap between communities and foster care kids.

"We show value and worth to vulnerable children in crisis, we support the families who care for them and we show hospitality to the staff at DHS," Every Child said.

There will be another chance to support Every Child on May 28 at Red Robin in Medford, when SOU social psychology students host a fundraiser as part of Foster Care Awareness Month.

"As part of the Social Psychology class with Dr. Reeder we have decided to fundraise for Every Child Jackson County," the students wrote. "Every Child aims to provide love, care, and support for vulnerable children and families in Oregon."

Every Child provides the means for community members to give direct support to foster kids through care packages (a Welcome Box, Launch Box or Baby Bag) or by helping interested adults look into becoming foster parents themselves.
