Sparrow Club

Mission: Sparrow Clubs USA is primarily a Pacific Northwest charity, serving in the states of Oregon and Washington. During the recent recession, we have had to pull back from operating outside the Pacific Northwest due to the lack of resources. The recent airing of ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition featuring the McPhail family and Sparrow Clubs has sparked a large interest in Sparrow Clubs across the nation. While we would love to be able to launch Sparrow projects in every state, it is just not possible at this time. Our Board of Directors is willing to review inquiries outside of Oregon and Washington on a case by case basis.

Resources Provided:
-children with medical needs are sponsored by the community
