Recovery Efforts on NW 23rd
While the recent explosion in our beloved neighborhood brought destruction, fear, and emotional pain, the strength and resilience in our community is alive and well.
Not only that, but a few of the effected businesses are beginning to re-open (congratulations to Blush on their grand re-opening!)
The community and surrounding businesses are putting forth an incredible effort to offer help, and we are encouraging all of Portland to reach out and support these fantastic businesses! Here are some ways to get involved:
November 12th Fundraiser
Join Nob Hill businesses on Saturday, November 12th for a day of fundraising to help the recovery efforts!
Participating businesses like Hip Hound, Tender Loving Empire, Child’s Play Toys and more will have donation boxes available, with all proceeds going to the effected businesses.
There will also be seasonal drinks, treats, discounts and specials all day, plus all donors will be entered into a raffle drawn at the end of the day!
Get a jump on your holiday shopping and give a little extra love along the way!
Interested in participating? Email Ari.email@example.com!
Tender Loving Empire Employee Relief Fund
The lovely folks at Tender Loving Empire have put together a NW 23rd Employee Relief Fund for those employees who no longer have employment. Please help them get the word out and consider contributing!
Crowdfunding is a fantastic way to contribute to some of these relief projects. Check them out:
Child’s Play Toy Store Fundraiser
Donate $1 and have your name written on a star displayed at their store. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the effected businesses.
Thank you to everyone who is helping rebuild the morale of our community!
