Timbers Army Airport Bench to Benefit Street Soccer Portland
PDXoriginals was created by a trio of Portland based soccer fanatics, with a shared passion for sustainable furniture and decor projects. Inspired by a desire to use our business to give back to the community we love, we've long sought a collaboration with the Portland Timbers supporters group, Timbers Army, and their non-profit arm, 107st. The perfect opportunity arose when our friend Adam approached us about a project to benefit his spectacular organization, Street Soccer USA Portland. In its first year, Street Soccer USA-Portland established five free, life-changing soccer programs that served 236 people from Portland’s homeless, refugee and under served communities. It also provided 95 individual social service referrals and improved the confidence, self-esteem and resiliency of 92 percent of participants.
In collaboration with the TA team, we've produced this re-imagination of the Chromcraft Airport Bench that lived in Portland International Airport for over 30 years.
This is the perfect way to watch our Portland Timbers bag goals. The Mustang Brown seat cushions are inspired by the Timber's bench seats our boys sit on every game. The log slab table is from club legend Diego Valeri's MVP season. Rose embroidered siding fabric helps balance the color scheme, inspired by the Rose City roots of the club. The seat backs feature game-used TIFO, highlighting club colors from this massive, colorful display.
This bench is available via the upcoming Willamette Week Give! Guide. Follow the links to the left for more information and donation options.
