We like to think of ourselves as the little-store-that-could.
Our in-store benefits are so well-supported they are known for bringing in the highest donations of all our stores. Our customers’ donations saved Sellwood Middle School’s music program. In return, their steel drum and jazz band performed at our store. Now that’s music to our ears!
Our store’s Green Team often partners with the Johnson Creek Watershed Council doing trail maintenance. And our staff participates in the SMILE (Sellwood-Moreland Improvement League) program, furthering discussion about the Sellwood Bridge, community development and zoning.
Since 1949, the Portland Rescue Mission has had a tireless commitment to breaking the cycle of homelessness. Through the generous donations of our Sellwood customers, we have been able to help PRM offer emergency services of food and shelter at their original downtown location: 111 West Burnside.
