The ADoor Project
Of The Pacific Northwest


The Adoor Project of the Pacific Northwest, organized by Harbor Art Guild, thanks all who participated in our first artistic door silent auction.
This succesful first annual Adoor Project provides scholarship funds to benefit a graduate of the Aberdeen or Hoquiam High School Senior class.

One of the problems faced by high school graduates is continuing education, especially for those graduates whose interests are more in line with
technical and trades training. Up to this point there has been little local support for trade school attendees.
This scholarship addresses that need.




A Testimonal

Your program gave my son the Strengths,
self believe and skills
to believe he could DO this!!!
During a time when people would tell him,
“ YOU NEED A PLAN B”
… you provided NO self doubt with a realistic Canvas
and economical support to prove you believe in him.
As parents that’s Priceless ♥️ That’s what I call
a Successful Community Program.

About Us

Old doors for new art & scholarships.

Roots & History


In 2018 Debbi Jensen and Gladys Whitney formed Sweeping Beauties of 98520 to help new business owners clean out storefront spaces to make way for new business. That evolved into beautifying vacant storefronts with decorated doors that were donated by Earthwise Architectural Savage in Aberdeen. Then, the doors started being painted by students and community members.

In 2019 The name was changed to the Adoor Project of the Pacific Northwest a Washington State recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit set up under the guidance of Douglas Orr of the Aberdeen Art Center. Debbi Jensen then recruited Tammy Heth and the two of them proceeded to introduce the Adoor Project to Aberdeen High School counselors. This program allows students to apply hours-worked on Adoor Project toward the 15 hours of community service to graduate. Many students and community members participated in painting the doors which were shown at the Goldberg Building, DNR, Mount Olympus Brewery, Nirvana Coffee, and several other sites.

In 2020 Covid 19 slowed the process but the group proceeded and started a silent auction through HAG. All Adoor Project sales go towards funding our scholarships for students at Aberdeen and Hoquiam High Schools.

The video below shows some of our first doors and provides additional information.
