Together at the Table Matching Gift Challenge—November 1st through December 31st!

We’re Celebrating 35 years Together at the Table!
After 35 years in Old Town, Sisters is still here, growing with this community and evolving to meet the needs of each new customer while standing true to our commitment to nonviolence, dignity, and respect.

We know that each human being walking through our doors has a deep story to tell. Since the beginning, Sisters has provided a place for that story to grow and change as each person can, always believing in the power of love and friendship to keep us together. That is what brings us back each morning -that history, and the good healthy food from the kitchen.


During November and December, Together at the Table Matching Gift Challenge, your donation is be matched, 50¢ on the dollar for all donations, plus an additional $1-for-$1 match for each new donor!  Made possible by grants from The Collins Foundation and the Rose E. Tucker Charitable Trust.That means a $100 donation becomes $150 and if you are a new donor it builds to $250!

Donate to Sisters today!

At Sisters we offer more than a hand up. We ask you to join us by putting your heart in with a gift during this important campaign season.

Share your Love for Sisters with Care and Share!

Care and Shareby Brenda Morgan, Special Events Co-Manager

How many times have you planned a holiday party and thought “this year, I want to have fun and do something different, something meaningful”?

Here’s how!  Have a Care and Share house party, or host a special benefit event at your place of business.  More and more of Sisters’ friends and supporters are having fun hosting Care and Share gatherings and other benefit events. One party host, Joel D., said it was incredibly easy, enjoying time with family and friends. It was a potluck with music and dancing, and guests felt good about making a collective donation.  The synergy grew into a heartwarming gathering, and the good feelings were paid forward with a $415 donation to Sisters.Paying it forward with a Care and Share party

Last year, we were thrilled to raise $6,460 from Care and Share house parties and special benefit events!  Here’s how a Care and Share house party works: you host a party, invite 10 guests or more, and ask each to donate $20.  In November and December during our Together at the Table Matching Challenge, the $200 total that you raise will be matched $.50 cents on the dollar, turning the $200 into $300.  Partner with a friend, or hold your party at a local pub.  We’ve heard of a Trivial Pursuit night, and other game competitions. Be creative and fun! We will support you by providing material about Sisters, and if you’d like, someone from Sisters will attend to speak about our programs.

If you are a business owner, there are lots of ways to hold special benefit events at your place of business. Call us for more information, and to get your event on our calendar.  Contact Brenda at 503-222-5694 ext. 114, or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
