Friends of Trees thanks all of you for your support this year. Your contributions, like five-year-old Phoebe’s, have helped us restore more green spaces and plant more trees in neighborhoods than ever before.
You may have seen Phoebe in The Oregonian this month. She saved her allowance, coin by coin, to give to Friends of Trees—and inspired her mother and grandmother to give as well.
“I love trees!” says Phoebe. “I love trees because of their pretty leaves, because they’re like umbrellas, because they make a special syrup, and because you can hang a hammock from them.”
There’s still time for you to donate this year. Whether you give tax-deductible Gift Trees to friends and family, make a membership gift, or contribute to Friends of Trees through the Willamette Week Give! Guide, your donation will help us continue making the Portland metro area greener and healthier in 2011 and beyond.
Happy Holidays from Friends of Trees, and thank you for considering a gift to us.
Chief Development Officer, Friends of Trees
Community Warehouse, a non-profit that collects and redistributes furniture and household items to people in need is moving to the former location of Hanna Bea’s at 3969 Martin Luther King Jr. and Shaver Street.
To ensure that our shelves stay stocked, businesses, families, schools, and other professional and social groups throughout the metro area host collection drives for the Community Warehouse for one week in 2009. We encourage you to consider helping local families in need by agreeing to gather items for the Warehouse.
During your week, you and your group will collect needed items. Community Warehouse helps coordinate these efforts, picking up items from a central donation drop-off point, providing guidance on items needed and flyers to publicize collection efforts. For more information or to adopt a week in 2009, contact Roz, our Community Connects volunteer, at (503) 329-5588 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
