Want to do still more?  The historic Billy Webb Lodge Building, recently nominated to the National Register of Historic Places for its importance to Portland's Black Community was seriously damaged by fire recently.   Fund raising had already begun before the fire to restore this historic structure, and now still more funds are needed.  Here's the link to a GoFundMe site to do just that.  Please give generously!
