Won’t You Meet My Neighbor?
At New Seasons Slabtown, we’ve just unveiled our newest program to help shoppers and staff make real connections with each other in their community. The program is called Community Spotlight and through it, our store highlights people who have made the Slabtown neighborhood a better place. Be it through community service, art, education, or all around neighborly love—we feel that our community members should be not only thanked for their service, but also celebrated! This month’s spotlight is on Twyla & Leona from Lift Urban Portland! Find out more about Lift and our Community Spotlight program in store.
Lift Urban Portland’s mission is to reduce hunger and improve the lives of low-income residents of Northwest and Downtown Portland. Because of the generous donations of our Slabtown customers, we are able to help Lift Urban Portland collect and distribute food, maintain community gardens and sponsor educational programs that encourage healthy life choices.
For Kari Lorz, one of the best parts of her job is the people, “I love that I get to meet and engage with so many different individuals.” As the Community Coordinator at our Slabtown store, Kari rubs elbows with everyone from chefs to wellness experts to our awesome, inspiring customers. And she loves the vibrant, historic neighborhood because there’s always something going on! Kari freely admits she is a nerd, gleefully creating spreadsheets and running retirement calculations in her free time.
