PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — On Friday, a Boys and Girls Club van was damaged during the riot at the Portland Police Bureau’s North Precinct. A window was broken by a golf ball.
At the time, the van was parked in the Boys and Girls Club parking lot, next door to the precinct. Employees said they have no reason to believe the vandalism was intentional, but repairs will be $200-400.
“When vans get damaged, buildings get damaged, when stuff gets tagged, when we have to clean it up—that’s money that’s not going toward serving kids and that’s always unfortunate,” said Amanda Myer with the Boys and Girls Club.
The Boys and Girls Club is a non-profit, donations to their work can be made online here.
