Friendly Fruit Jam—a sweet way to build community!
Since 2012, Friendly House has made jam as a fundraiser for our programs. Every year raspberries are donated by the generous folks at Columbia Farms U-Pick and our blackberries are donated by our friends at Rowell Bros. Berry Farm. Volunteers of all ages pick the berries, and licensed adult volunteers process them and cook up jam in our Brentano building’s commercial kitchen. Sponsorship funds allow us to buy the supplies like jars, labels, pectin, and sugar, so all the sales proceeds go directly to supporting our programs.
Jam is available at Friendly House for $6 per jar or three jars for $15. It is also available for purchase at New Seasons Market (Slabtown location) and Food Front Cooperative Grocery at both locations. Contact our Development Department to find out more about bulk sales: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (503) 228-4391
If you are interested in helping us pick berries or make jam this summer (usually in July), please email our volunteer manager at email@example.com so we can make sure to keep you updated on our dates for jam making!
Is your business interested in helping to support Friendly Fruit? Here are some ideas:
• Can you sell it at your location? Coffee shops and boutiques are a great venue for this special product.
• Buy it as a gift for clients? Bulk discounts are available.
• Will you sponsor our jam this year? We have several levels of sponsorship opportunities to fit every budget.
“I did not want to miss the chance to help out with jam making to benefit the Preschool. It was a very special place for my son, and I want future kids to have as much, if not more, at the Preschool.”
