Our Portland location is supported by an awesome organization called Portland Downtown which works hard to support the businesses of Portland. Every year they put on an event called Shop for a Cause where many of the downtown businesses will bond together and choose an organization to donate money to. This year we chose the Milestone Foundation which works to support people who are facing addiction and homelessness in our community. Portland was really smart and decided to have this event the same as Small Business Saturday.
It’s an awesome event in the community and we had some very happy shoppers who were pleased to know that their money was going to a good cause as well as a local business.
We were even treated to some lovely Carolers who were spreading holiday joy to the happy Old Port shoppers.
Portland store Manager, Marie, was interviewed three different times over the course of the day about Shop for a Cause and Small Business Saturday. Links to these interviews are below.
