Can you believe we are already in the middle of the season?
For this Match Day Drive, we are asking Riveters to bring beauty and grooming supplies so we can donate them to organizations who are helping homeless women and victims of domestic violence throughout the Portland area. Our items will be donated to our partners at Rose Haven and Raphael House.
Many of those who are seeking the support of these two organizations do not have access to these daily comfort items that were a part of their routines. For many women, these are basic items to which they no longer have access. Being able to put on makeup or do your hair is not just about looking good, but also about emotional empowerment and being ready to take on the day! Many of the women served by Rose Haven and Raphael House are preparing themselves for events where they may need elevated confidence and support, such as job interviews, court dates, or children’s concerts.
Please bring new packages of makeup, lotion, hair product, hair supplies, hair brushes, combs, deodorant, and other beauty supply items to the Fanladen before you head into the match! Remember to keep all hair types and skin colors in mind while shopping. The Fanladen is located at 1633 SW Alder and is open 2 hours before the Thorns kickoff and for an hour after each match. This drive will be in effect for July 2nd and July 9th, so if you forget or are out of town this weekend, bring it to the next!
