We celebrated our major donors on Thursday July 17th with an event sponsored by Fred Meyer, ArtVault and Oregon Elder Law. Over 60 Store to Door supporters gathered to take in gorgeous artwork by James Hanlon and delicious food and beverages provided by Fred Meyer.  We also honored a volunteer, a community partner, and a board member for their extraordinary contributions to our work. Click here to view photos from the evening.

Multnomah County Aging and Disabilities Services (ADS) received the Extraordinary Community Partner Award. ADS and Store to Door have partnered since 1989, serving low-income people who qualify for Oregon Project Independence and others receiving case management services. Store to Door utilizes the ADS Gatekeeper Program to identify, refer, and respond to at-risk seniors and people with disabilities. This close relationship with ADS allows Store to Door to refer clients to additional services that support their health and safety.

The Extraordinary Board Member Award was presented to Michelle Carew who currently serves as Board Secretary. Michelle supports Store to Door’s social media programs, co-authors newsletters, and most recently spearheaded a project to document client stories.

Long-time volunteer Phyllis Birchard was named Extraordinary Volunteer of the Year. Phyllis has made more than 2,000 grocery deliveries to Beaverton seniors and people with disabilities over the last 20 years. One of her clients is turning 103-years old this year.

Thank you to the local businesses that donated door prizes to the event:  Twist, Beaches, Tapalaya, Lucy Activewear, and Zerba Cellars.

S2D 1

2013 was a banner year for us!  We moved our office to Multnomah Village, right next door to the Meals on Wheels People, and due to a re-model at the Stadium Fred Meyer, we moved our shopping site to Hollywood Fred Meyer.  Both of these new locations have been fruitful homes for our work.

Our clients continued to give us positive feedback. According to the 2013 client survey, not only do 98% of them feel that we help them to maintain their independence, 93% would recommend us to a friend.  There is no greater compliment than that.

Below is an overview of some of our outcomes from 2013:

  • Store to Door volunteers and staff served 405 clients, most of whom receive groceries every week. Together, we completed 6,500 orders.
  • 250 volunteers gave 9,248 hours of service and received much praise from clients, “Debbie has a sixth sense for helping me to get the right things when I order. And can I adopt my delivery driver?”
  • Contributions to the organization increased by 90%
  • 95% of our clients thought that our service was affordable. “I wouldn’t question the fee for a minute.”
  • 97% of our clients felt more socially supported after enrolling in Store to Door’s volunteer-based program.
  • 100% of clients identified as at risk were referred for additional services.

Getting Award from Kate Brown

Store to Door proudly received this year’s Oregon Governor’s Volunteer Award for Outstanding Nonprofit Volunteer Program in Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas Counties. Executive Director Kiersten Ware and Board Member Michelle Carew accepted the award from Secretary of State Kate Brown at a ceremony in Salem, Oregon on April 24, 2014.

“These volunteers represent the very best of Oregon,” said Governor Kitzhaber. “They have found and filled needs in their community, using common purpose, compassion, and ingenuity to make a huge and lasting difference. I congratulate and thank them for their service.”

Store to Door supports independent living for Portland area seniors and people with disabilities by providing a low-cost grocery shopping and delivery service. 100% of Store to Door’s clients are low-income or unemployed and 80% are women.

With the help of 275 volunteers who take orders, shop, and make deliveries every week, the agency serves 400 low-income people in Multnomah and Washington Counties every year. Store to Door provides access to fresh food, medications, and household items and is the only service of its kind in Oregon.

“It was an absolute honor to receive this award on behalf of the hundreds of dedicated Store to Door volunteers who help make independent living and aging with dignity possible for our clients,” said Kiersten Ware.

The Oregon Volunteers Commission for Voluntary Action and Service organizes the awards program. Wells Fargo sponsors the awards and is making a cash grant to each nonprofit organization being recognized. “The honorees’ dedication to volunteerism has helped create stronger, more vibrant Oregon communities,” said Wells Fargo Regional President Tracy Curtis.

Store to Door’s services in the Portland metro area are vital for the growing population of seniors. For seniors, protecting themselves from food insecurity and hunger is more difficult than for the general population. One in six seniors will experience hunger.

“Since 1989, Store to Door’s amazing volunteers have helped us make 130,000 deliveries for people who would not otherwise have access to food and other necessities,” says Ware. “We are incredibly touched by the generosity of every single volunteer who helps support our clients.”

Congratulations to everyone who currently volunteers with us or who has supported our work at anytime over the last 25 years!
