A Story Like Mine

Books are most effective when they are relevant to children’s lives, but our current inventory of culturally diverse books is not nearly sufficient to meet the need of the wide diversity of children and families we serve.  To bridge the gap between the need for culturally diverse books and the lack of availability, we are launching “A Story Like Mine.” Your support of this project helps us make more culturally diverse books available for all of the children we serve. 

The Oregon/SW Washington local chapter collected over 300 books for the Portland area Children's Book Bank during the 2016 campaign... Thanks to everyone who contributed!

​The Oregon/SW Washington COMTO chapter held a Family Field Day and Scholarship Fundraiser event on August 26, 2017 at Mt. Scott City Park. The event featured a grand prize raffle,  special raffle items, and silent auctions. Proceeds from this Youth Scholarship Fundraiser event helped fund our local Chapter Scholarship Program that provides financial assistance to locally qualified minority students studying in the field of transportation. We appreciate your support to COMTO.​​
