Maurice Lucas Foundation pivots to provide services to students and families during the PPS strike
The Maurice Lucas Foundation has pivoted in order to provide services to students and families during the PPS teachers' work stoppage. From 8:30 - 5:30, Maurice Lucas Foundation students can access a variety of support resources at Cartside Food Carts, including academic tutors, meals, and a fun, safe space to be with their peers. Activities include ping-pong, STEM activities, art activities, game stations, and much more.
Huge thank you to Cartside Food Carts for donating the space in order for students and families to continue having support during the current PPS teachers' strike.
About the Maurice Lucas Foundation
The Foundation is named in honor of the late Maurice Lucas (1952-2010), the leading scorer on the 1977 NBA champion Trail Blazers team. Besides his outstanding achievements on the court, Lucas also selflessly gave his time and energy to Portland youth. Since its formation in 2010, the Maurice Lucas Foundation has served thousands of students and families through its Academy program, basketball camps and teams.
