This Saturday the Portland Timbers will launch the team’s second annual tour across Oregon and SW Washington. Hosted with Timbers Founding Partner JELD-WEN Windows and Doors, the Dribble Oregon tour will include youth soccer clinics, meetings with fans, and tree plantings with Timbers Pillar Partner Friends of Trees.

Dribble Oregon begins in Vancouver, WA on Jan. 5. Timbers players Brent Richards and Ryan Kawulok, team mascot Timber Joey, and members of the Timbers Army Northern Alliance will plant a dozen trees with Friends of Trees and Vancouver Urban Forestry. The planting begins at 1:30 pm at 2204 Wahclellah Avenue in the Meadow Homes neighborhood.

“It’s a full day of fun-filled events and we are proud to help bring the Portland Timbers to a community near you,” said Bill Hueffner, Director of Development & Professional Relations for JELD-WEN.
