Tonkon Torp Donates to Write Around Portland
October 24, 2014
Tonkon Torp made a donation to Write Around Portland (WAP) as part of their October 23 XY&Z Fundraiser. Hilary Hanes, who frequently volunteers at WAP along with his wife, instigated Tonkon's participation in the event. WAP brings free 10-week creative writing workshops to hospitals, schools, prisons, homeless youth shelters, senior centers, low income apartments, treatment facilities, and other health care and social service settings. Workshops culminate in published books and public readings to connect readers and writers.
