Fundraising into Fall

There’s a lot going on for the rest of the year, and we wanted to make sure you know about everything!

August 31, 2018: Garden Bar Giveback Friday

A week from today, we’ll be the Giveback Friday partner for Garden Bar as part of their mission to invest deeply into the community. (They’ve raised more than $5,000 for local nonprofits this way!) For every Classic salad or Summer bowl sold that day, they’ll donate $1 to us—three salads at your table puts a new book in the hands of a local child in need. While you work up an appetite, check for you nearest location.

If you go, we’d love for you to share about it on social media to thank Garden Bar for their support: tag @gardenbarpdx on Instagram or Twitter.

October 25, 2019: Wine-ing for Literacy

Our signature fundraising event returns for its seventh year. We have several wonderful sponsors lined up and many donors have already contributed to our silent auction. Visit our Events page for all the details. Registration is live!

Through January 2019: Bag it Forward

We were so pleased to return as an education partner with New Seasons Market for the Bag It Forward program this year — and that was before we found out we’d been chosen by five locations. Wow! If you bring your own bag to shop at the following New Seasons locations, you can donate your refund to us. Just drop a bean in our jar.

•  Cedar Hills, 3495 Southwest Cedar Hills Blvd, Beaverton
•  Hawthorne, 4034 Southeast Hawthorne Blvd, Portland
•  Progress Ridge, 14805 Southwest Barrows Rd, Beaverton
•  Slabtown, 2170 Northwest Raleigh St, Portland
•  Woodstock, 4500 Southeast Woodstock Blvd, Portland

p.s.

If you are a Fred Meyer shopper, we are still registered with their Community Rewards program. They have updated their system, so we have a new number (#LN701). Visit our Give page for the complete how-to.
