Sure, it might not even be Thanksgiving yet, but when it comes to retail stores, Christmas shopping appears to be in full swing regardless. So, if you’re currently getting the early jump on your gift buying this year, did you know shopping is one of the easiest, most convenient ways you can support Portland Rescue Mission?
To do that on Amazon, in particular, all you have to do is use the AmazonSmile version of the site. Once you do that, choose Portland Rescue Mission as your charity of choice. With AmazonSmile, you can not only use all your same Amazon Prime benefits and buy items at the same low prices, but at no additional cost to you, the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5 percent of your purchases back to Portland Rescue Mission on all AmazonSmile-eligible purchases. And as an added bonus, if you plan to shop on AmazonSmile anytime soon, you will also get the opportunity to share in their early “Countdown to Black Friday” deals.
Another easy way to support Portland Rescue Mission is through Fred Meyer Community Rewards. Similar to AmazonSmile, once you link your Fred Meyer card to Portland Rescue Mission, a portion of all your purchases go back to giving hope and restoring life for men, women and children suffering from homelessness and addiction.
Outside of shopping for presents at AmazonSmile and Fred Meyer, you can also “ADD A MEAL” (for $1.60) at select New Seasons Market as you gather food and other things for your big Thanksgiving dinner coming up in a couple of weeks.
Those are just some of the ways you can continue the work of Portland Rescue Mission. For other creative ways, go to PortlandRescueMission.org/Join and jump in for the holidays. It’s because of your generous support that our Hope, Pathway and New Life Ministries continue to thrive.
