Puppet LabsSometimes, it’s the day to day activities that really matter. We always put a big emphasis on helping out the community during the holidays, but once the time of year comes and goes, community support gets little to no attention.

That’s why we are always happy to hear when local businesses go out of their way to make the community brighter in some way.

Puppet Labs, one of our long time partners, made an incredible donation of yesterday’s lunch leftovers to Portland Homeless Family Solutions and plans on continuing these donations into the future.

Portland Homeless Family Solutions, or PHFS, is a nonprofit whose mission is to provide temporary emergency shelter to homeless families with children. They also provide access to transitional resources to help families achieve self sufficiency, and advocate to help alleviate family homelessness on a large scale.

This time of the year can be the hardest for those who are living without. You can help make it a little less difficult. PHFS is a part of the Give Guide, put together by Willamette Weekly, allowing you to donate anywhere between $10-3000+. However, sometimes your time can be the best gift of all. PHFS invites you to take advantage of their volunteer opportunities that can fit the busiest of schedules.

This Thanksgiving, we are abundantly thankful for all of the amazing people we work with on a daily basis. Thanks to our friends at Puppet Labs for taking care of those in need here in our wonderful city.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
