November 8th, 2012 by Doree

Alpine Tree and Wreath will open a Christmas tree lot in the parking lot next to Medicine Man Pharmacy at 323 N. 85th St., beginning the day after Thanksgiving. Hours will be 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (although they’ll open at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 23).

Oregon-grown Noble and Grand firs will range from two-feet to eight-feet tall, with a six-foot Noble fir costing $64. If you purchase a tree, you’ll get 20 percent off wreaths or garland.

They’ll also have a collection bin out for Northwest Harvest so folks can donate non-perishable food.

Help Greenwood Food Bank at Safeway

July 16th, 2011 by Doree

Northwest Harvest is teaming up with Safeway stores to collect food for local food banks through July 24.

Through “Every Bag Counts,” Safeway customers can purchase a pre-packed bag for $10, and that food will go directly to a food bank in that community.

“Summer hunger is a reality for many families across the state,” Northwest Harvest’s Executive Director Shelley Rotondo said in a press release. “Children can’t access free or reduced-cost meals at school, summer feeding programs are stretched thin and the recession continues to impact many people including those who never thought they’d be standing in line at a food bank.”
