New Seasons Market is collecting and then matching donations to Mercy Corps, a Portland-based international relief agency, to help survivors of the Jan. 12 earthquake that devastated the Haitian city of Port-au-Prince.
The Portland Metro area stores will collectively match contributions up to $20,000. Mercy Corps will use donations to provide immediate humanitarian relief, help with clean water supplies, offer trauma support for children and provide long-term job creation to help people rebuild their lives.
New Seasons Market originally set a goal of matching $10,000 in donations, which was quickly met due to the generosity and compassion of the community.
Donations can be made at store registers (no purchase is required) at all nine New Seasons Markets and at www.newseasonsmarket.com. Hillsboro/Beaverton area Store are listed below:
Cedar Hills Crossing, 3495 Cedar Hills Blvd, Beaverton
Orenco Station, 1453 NE 61st Ave., Hillsboro
Founded by three Portland-area families, New Seasons Market continues to be locally owned and operated. It strives to combine the service and atmosphere of an old-fashioned neighborhood market with a selection of foods and other products for today's lifestyle. New Seasons Market stores are in the Portland neighborhoods of Raleigh Hills, Sellwood, Concordia, Arbor Lodge and Seven Corners (Southeast Portland), as well as Lake Oswego's Mountain Park, Hillsboro's Orenco Station, Beaverton's Cedar Hills Crossing and Clackamas County's Happy Valley.
