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.

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:
