Willamette Week Give Guide: November-December 2019

Thank you to everyone who supported us through the Willamette Week Give Guide in 2019. We raised more than $8,000. We have been selected again for 2020 - stayed tuned for more information this Fall!


During the end of the year, Mother & Child Education Center reaches out to current and potential supporters to raise money to support our daily programs, classes and client care days. In 2019, we were selected for inclusion in the Willamette Week Give!Guide program - an amazing chance for us to share about our program with thousands of potential donors in Portland. We are reaching out to clients, volunteers, donors and community partners to give everyone the opportunity to support Mother & Child financially.


We are blessed with lots of donated supplies that we are able to share with clients, but it still takes cash to pay the few staff we have, utilities, and supplies we can't get donated.


No gift is too great, or too small.


There are printed and digital versions of the Give!Guide and we have included a link to the digital version in this e-blast. Mother & Child is listed under Human Services on page 138.


Please join us in supporting our mission to create connections in a judgement-free space to provide support, education and resources for anyone who is parenting including expectant women, fathers and those facing challenges, such as lack of housing, poverty, substance abuse or other trauma.


As you are probably aware, every month we connect with an average of 200 parents on a one-to-one basis.


All funds raised support our on-going programs and families in need. If you prefer to donate through another method, such as by check, please mail it to MCEC, 1515 NE 41st, Portland, OR 97232 or come by and visit us.


All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.


Special thanks to our business sponsors, Hot Lips Pizza-Hollywood which will provide free slice coupons to

the first 25 donors of $25 and more and BWild Kombucha which will give two bottles of kombucha to the first 50 donors 35 and under. All donors will go in a raffle for wonderful prizes.


Finally, each Thursday, Willamette Week will host BIG GIVE DAYS - when you donate on a BIG GIVE DAY you also get put in a raffle. More info is available about that online at

Dare To Dream Silent Auction & Happy Appetizers - CANCELLED

Unfortunately, we had to cancel our Spring silent auction in support of making our families dreams come true. We may decided to do an online auction, but will decide later. Many of our donors have now closed their businesses due to the pandemic. Contact Maura White, 503-249-5801 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
