Scam alert: Fake Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland workers soliciting donations
Posted June 29
PORTLAND, OR — People posing as Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland workers are soliciting donations in southeast Portland.
Real club workers want people to know this is a scam.
The fraudulent solicitors were in the Woodstock neighborhood Tuesday handing out fliers and accepting cash donations, claiming the money would go toward music programs.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland staff members always wear identifying uniforms during club-affiliated activities and they do not solicit donations this way.
People are encouraged to verify if such a situation is legitimate by calling the organization's administrative offices at 503-232-0077.
Donations can be made at bgcportland.org, via mail or dropped off in person at any club location across the Portland-metro area.
