PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Kilts and Plaids, a fundraising effort from AC Portland aiming to transform Portland-area communities through youth soccer, is holding three events in the next 10 days.

On Saturday, Aug. 25, you can volunteer to help out at Whitman Elementary School for a school makeover from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers working in three-hour shifts will help install new goals and spruce up the soccer field, not to mention tidy up the school grounds.

On Sunday, Aug. 26, the Portland Timbers Reserves will host the San Jose Earthquakes with a 6 p.m. kickoff at JELD-WEN Field. Each ticket is $10 and 50 percent of purchases support AC Portland.

Finally, on Friday, Aug. 31 - it's Wear a Kilt or Plaid to work day as the Timbers face the Colorado Rapids. You can also wear your kilt or plaid to the match and show support for AC Portland students as they play during halftime.

All proceeds collected help more than 400 local students participate in the U.S. Soccer Foundation's Soccer For Success and America SCORES programs.
