Housing and storage of photos and objects.

The Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center serves as a focal point for the preservation and sharing of the history and culture of the Japanese American community. The Legacy Center is a venue for cultural and research activities and an invaluable resource for the exploration of the experiences of Japanese Americans and their role in Oregon's multi-cultural community.

The Angel's project will assist the Oregon Nikkei Endowment in housing and storing their numerous photographs and archives. The museum holds a number of historical photographs, personal papers, diaries, and ephemera important to the Japanese community in Oregon. Help the museum re-house objects and prepare them for storage, clean objects on display and help with specific projects like flattening of photographs.
