Building a Thanksgiving Basket with BPM

Help us provide a beautiful Thanksgiving meal this year to 150 BTown Kid Families! Whether it is donating to create a full Thanksgiving meal, giving to one of our Thanksgiving bundles, or donating what you can give, we greatly appreciate your donations to help feed the families of the kids from our BTown Kids program. Our mission is "Loving People Because People Matter," and what a fitting mission it is to be giving during this year of 2020.  However much that you can give during this difficult time, we thank you for your donation and helping families in our community sit together and have a Thanksgiving meal.  

Full Thanksgiving meal: $80-$100


Thanksgiving Bundles:

"All About Those Mash Potatoes" (gravy packets, potatoes, butter): $15

"Can't Have Thanksgiving without the Sides" (cranberry sauce, green beans, mushroom soup, dinner rolls, stuffing): $16

"Dessert Time!" (Martinelli's cider, pies, whipped cream): $12

"Gobble Gobble" (Turkey): $20

This fundraiser is initiated by the Moreau Center at the University of Portland.
