family promise
Bring gift cards for the Giving Tree at Sunset CU

Help make the holidays better for those in need

Sunset Credit Union is teaming up with Family Promise of Beaverton to help brighten the holiday season and support those who are less fortunate. Family Promise helps people of all ages—we’ve found that gift cards from places like Target, Fred Meyers or just Visa Gift cards are the best gifts to give them. 

If you’d like to help Sunset Credit Union support Family Promise of Washington County, you can drop off your gift card donation any time before December 17 at Sunset Credit Union (1100 NW Murray Blvd #100, across from the Safeway Shopping Center). If you have any questions, please contact them at 503-643-1335.

CMBA raising funds for homeless youth

We are excited to kick off a special fundraiser to support Homeless Youth in the Beaverton School District. Traditionally, we have donated to this outreach and this year we plan to do the same this year. Due to cost increases, we are asking for additional donations to enhance our gift.

Please donate through this link below and we will provide your funds directly to the Beaverton Resource Center on behalf of CMBA. Together we are making an impact in the community!

Feel free to share on the link on social media to raise awareness and promote our efforts.

There will be something for everyone! Local merchants, artisans, and makers will fill nearly 100 spaces to the brim with a delightful variety of handcrafted gifts, décor & wearables, local artisanal foods, & even a couple of your favorite direct sales companies! Enjoy live music and a bite to eat while you shop! Don’t forget to bring your little ones to visit with Santa from 11-2.

Admission is FREE as always. But if you’re feeling generous…your $1 donation at the door will help offset event expenses, making more of the funds raised available to BHS students and programs, including scholarships that we award each year! The Holiday Bazaar is one of the primary fundraisers for our parent group, BFAN. Profits from this event benefit the students and programs of BHS. We will also be collecting socks and non-perishable food items for our in-house pantry, the “Beaver Den.”

Our 2021 show will be an open-air market due to COVID restrictions on facilities use, so dress accordingly.
