Benefit Day Tuesday benefiting Metropolitan Family Service

logo_title

Every Tuesday Cupcake Jones donates 5% of our sales to a different non profit organization. 

This week, our beneficiary is “Metropolitan Family Service“.

Here is a bit about them from their web site:

In the post-World War II era, United Way recommended that a non-sectarian family counseling social service agency be established in Portland, Oregon. In 1950 Metropolitan Family Service — then Family Counseling Service — opened its doors 
in response to that recommendation and local area social concerns.

Over the last century Metropolitan Family Service has moved from a single service agency to an agency that provides multiple distinct, but related services that meet the ever-changing needs of the community. Today those services help children succeed, strengthen families and their connections to community, and help older adults live independently.

Our staff of 260 — most of whom work part time — shares our commitment to professionalism and excellence with 1,400 skilled and caring volunteers who contribute 173,000 hours in the Portland, Oregon tri-county area. Metropolitan Family Service makes connections that strengthen the lives of 37,000 low-income individuals and families each year. We provide services at more than 145 sites, including nearly 70 schools.”

We think their work is wonderful! Here’s how you can help them:
