Support your local school foundation with New Seasons' Cans For Kids Program!

Posted on March 29, 2017 in PPS Foundation Updates

As you know, supporting the work of PPS Local School Foundations and the PPS Parent Equity Fund is made easy through New Seasons’ innovative Cans for Kids program. And, beginning on April 1st redemptions in Oregon are increasing to 10 cents!


It only takes three steps to make a difference in our community:

Step 1: Collect your redeemable cans and bottles (at home, at work, at school).

Step 2: Bring your cans and bottles to any Portland New Seasons Market store and give them to a cashier, or in some locations place them in the Cans for Kids bin located in the front of the store.

Step 3: Feel good that the redemption from those cans and bottles will go directly to support PPS schools and students!


One-hundred percent of net parent-raised funds through PPS Local School Foundations benefit PPS students and schools due in large part to the historic and significant contributions from New Seasons Market through the Cans for Kids program.  All Hands Raised does not keep a single dollar of any of the money raised, including for operating expenses.

Since 1994, All Hands Raised has supported the work of PPS Parents to raise critical funding for teaching and staff positions in PPS schools and managed the innovative and impactful PPS Parent Equity Fund. Learn more about the PPS Parent Equity Fund here.
