Three Easy and Free Steps to Support PPS Schools at New Seasons Market

Posted on September 7, 2016 in PPS Foundation Updates

Supporting the work of PPS Local School Foundations and the PPS Parent Equity Fund is made easy through New Season’s innovative Cans for Kids program. It only takes three steps to make a difference in our community:

Step 1: Collect your redeemable cans and bottles (at home, at work, at school).


Step 2: Bring your cans and bottles to any Portland New Seasons Market store and give them to a cashier, or in some stores, place them in the Cans for Kids bin located in the front of the store.


Step 3: Feel good that the redemption from those cans and bottles will go directly to support PPS schools and students.


Since 1994, All Hands Raised has supported the work of PPS Parents to raise critical funding for teaching and staff positions in PPS schools and managed the innovative and impactful PPS Parent Equity Fund. One-hundred percent of net parent-raised funds benefit PPS students and schools due in large part to the historic and significant contributions from New Seasons Market through the Cans for Kids program. All Hands Raised does not keep a single dollar of any of the money raised, including for operating expenses.
