Plant Hope in the Lives of Families in Gresham


Gresham, OR (May 6, 2020) -- Cancelled fundraising events elevate the need for public support in order to maintain efforts. For 26 years, The Salvation Army in Gresham has hosted a Plant Sale to raise funds to support local youth programs that include their after-school program, free music lessons and family meals 5-days a week. 

Due to COVID-19, The Salvation Army in Gresham is unable to host their 27th annual fundraising plant sale. Normally this event would raise $10,000 and support local programs in the Rockwood Neighborhood. 

While you won’t be able to walk away with a beautiful plant this year, we are asking you to join us and Plant Hope by making a donation at All money raised stays in the Gresham community to support our local programs. Through Plant Hope you will make it possible for a child to receive free music lessons, give a family quality time together at our weeknight dinners, provide a safe after-school environment for a student, or stock our food pantry for community members in need.

“Right now, we ask our community to consider planting hope today in the lives of local families and kids,” said Captain Shoshannah R., Leader at The Salvation Army in Gresham. 

The Salvation Army in Gresham needs your support to be able to continue to provide needed services throughout this pandemic and beyond. This week, The Salvation Army launched Operation Share Hope, a new food program to meet the growing demand. Food boxes are available every Wednesday until further notice at East Hills Church located at 701 N Main Ave, Gresham, OR 97030 between 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM.
