Our very special friends from Mountain Peaks Therapy Llamas and Alpacas, Rojo and Napoleon visited Serendipity Center today along with two producers from CNN! They will be featured in a segment for the series, Vital Signs, hosted by Sanjay Gupta. The show will focus on the positive effect animals and pets can have on our overall health. At Serendipity, it’s clear that every time Rojo and his friends visit the collective spirit of our students and staff is raised.

We would like to thank Lori Gregory and Shannon Hendrickson for always supporting Serendipity, and for letting us be apart of your very special moment in the spotlight.

Serendipity Center would like to thank our invaluable community partners for the outpouring of love and support we received this holiday season. Without your support Serendipity Center would be unable to fulfill the need of supplementing our families over the two week break. We would like to recognize a number of organizations and individuals who made in-kind donations of warm winter clothing, food bags, and classroom gifts for all of our students this year!

Thank you to Central East Portland Rotary and St. Joseph the Worker church for providing many food bags for our families over the holidays. Thank you Pricewaterhouse Coopers Tax Team, Glendoveer Golf and Tennis, and Nike for brightening our student’s holiday season by fulfilling classroom gift requests. Also thank you to our long list of individuals who made donations over the holiday season and wonderful board of directors for being so involved and invested in our student’s futures.
