SOUTH CENTRAL OREGON OUTREACH & TOY RUN, INC. (SCOOTR) is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit corporation. Formed in 1998, SCOOTR is the only “motorcycle oriented” organization in Oregon formed solely for the purpose of providing assistance to families and benefiting the community. SCOOTR hosts three main events each year; the ICEBREAKER POKER RUN, on the third weekend in May; the SUMMER ERUPTION, a camp out with music, games and raffles, on the third weekend of July; and the TOY RUN dance and kids’ party with Santa and a live band, on the third Saturday in November.

In addition to providing financial assistance for medical and living expenses to families in need, SCOOTR makes regular contributions to the Air Life of Oregon for pediatric equipment and LaPine Parks & Recreation district. SCOOTR has also made contributions to Grandma’s House, LaPine schools, Girls ASA softball, LaPine High School Drug & Alcohol free graduations, LaPine High School Rodeo team, FBLA, NJROTC, Christmas Valley Boosters, Gilchrist schools, and the Trees of Joy. SCOOTR also works with other organizations, assisting with “Benefits” for specific community members, as needed. For example, eye glasses for a six year old boy in Christmas valley, and household assistance for two teenage girls who’s mother died of Cancer. The main purpose of the organization, however, is to provide food, clothing and toys to families in South Central Oregon at Christmas. In 2006 alone, SCOOTR spent over $17,000 filling the wish lists of local kids. Over $12,000 of that money was spent on clothing and shoes. Distribution of these items, along with the toys and food collected at the Toy Run dance, is coordinated with the LaPine Christmas Basket Association. Our goal is to make certain that no child is forgotten at Christmas.

All proceeds from SCOOTR events, raffles, sales of t-shirts, patches, and the “Bells, Stars & Trees” campaign, go back to the community. Operating expenses are minimal thanks to the generous contributions of local businesses and countless volunteer hours.

Please join us; by helping us help kids.
