The Next Door is about to celebrate 45 years in the Gorge.

To mark the anniversary, The Next Door is working to raise $45,000 in 45 days.

Longtime supporters Phil and Judy Jensen have offered to match the first $15,000 raised. In addition, The Next Door will host the Hood River Chamber of Commerce Coffee Clatter, at 8 a.m. on July 15, open to all.

Executive Director Janet Hamada stated, “We want to reconnect and celebrate with former staff, teachers, students and program participants, community partners, donors and anyone else who wants to mark this anniversary with us.” For details, contact Heidi Venture, Communications Manager, 541-436-0303. NDI and Klahre House is located on the Heights at 965 Tucker Rd.
