Our staff is passionate about helping our neighbors and supporting the community. We host tours for school kids all year long, because it’s a great way for kids to learn about choosing healthy foods, where food comes from, what organic means and of course, how a grocery store operates. We’re pleased to attend the Orenco Business Association’s monthly meetings, and we help clean up the wetlands and parks around our store neighborhood.
Bag It Forward partners: Bienestar, Tualatin Soil & Water Conservation District and Schoolhouse Supplies.
The nonprofit’s mission is to lead the way for eliminating conditions of poverty in Washington County, creating opportunities for people and communities to thrive. Since Orenco Station opened its doors, customers from that location have donated funds to help Community Action ensure that all members of our community have access to their most basic needs and resources.
Kristy joined New Seasons Market in 2010, and loves her unique job that’s always interesting and always fun. She feels very gratified to help support organizations like HomePlate and Community Action—and to be part of the incredible work they’re doing in Hillsboro. When she’s not tackling another project at Orenco Station, Kristy admits to being a total “Halloween nerd” and will use any excuse to wear a costume to work. We think she may have something to do with why our Orenco Station team won “Best Walking Irish Entry” at Hillsboro’s St. Patrick’s Day parade for two years in a row.
