Designers Give Back to Local Middle School

Portland, OR – The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Oregon chapter is pleased to announce participation in Green Apple Day of Service on September 28, 2013.

Partnering with Interface Flor, a team of chapter members and affiliated design professionals will be transforming the Counseling office at the da Vinci Arts Middle School. This is a space where students come to get guidance, hang out with peers, prepare for outdoor school and find resources for real “teen” world issues. This Portland Public School was selected particularly because of its ties to the Arts. Young designers and artists are in the making at this highly creative school! IIDA Oregon will be educating da Vinci Middle School on all the environmental products used in this project and why they make a difference to our world.
