Reading Mentor Timber Joey Makes Books Come Alive

Timber Joey has been volunteering with The Shadow Project for over 3 years. During the Portland Timbers off season, he serves as a Reading Mentor to Portland-area elementary students who are struggling with reading.

Kids love his warm demeanor and his larger than life job as the Timbers’ mascot.
