Portland, OR. Store to Door‘s Nourish to Flourish gala at the Exchange Ballroom raised more than $148,000 to help homebound seniors. Annabella Domenighini and Trish Bennett were among the more than 250 friends, who enjoyed a lively evening of Golden Tickets, Blinky Rings, a Store to Door version of ‘The Price is Right,’ and auction packages. Funds from the event will help Store to Door continue to support independent living for seniors and people with disabilities in the Portland area.
Presented by Fred Meyer, the event began with a reception sponsored by Bank of America, during which attendees enjoyed refreshments and took part in a wine wall, a gift card drawing, and previewed auction items. “Fred Meyer is proud to work with Store to Door as a partner in our Zero Hunger | Zero Waste social impact plan, to end hunger in the communities we call home by 2025,” says Fred Meyer Director of Corporate Affairs Jeffery Temple, “Store to Door’s efforts to end hunger by providing an affordable, personal, volunteer-based grocery shopping and delivery service has made the organization a uniquely important solution. We look forward to a strong ongoing partnership.”
From Store to Door:
For more than 28 years, Store to Door has supported independent living for Portland seniors and people with disabilities by providing an affordable, personal, volunteer-based grocery shopping and delivery service. When the program began in 1989, five volunteers shopped for twenty-five local seniors.
Today, more than 600 clients are supported by more than a thousand dedicated volunteers, donors, and community partners who make over 10,000 grocery deliveries possible annually.
Store to Door’s envisions a Portland community in which seniors and people with disabilities are nourished, connected, and able to age with dignity in the setting of their own choice.
