It's August in the Pearl. So many events are happening now! Save the date for art and community gatherings!
Art in the Pearl
Downtown Self Storage is thrilled to sponsor our neighbor, Art in the Pearl, and give them a hand with storage!
In the North Park Blocks (during Labor Day) Art in the Pearl is a collection of local artists from all over the Pacific Northwest, gathered together with live food and music! It's rated one of the country's top ten arts and crafts festivals, and there are no tickets! It's just free!
"Portland's Art In The Pearl Fine Arts & Crafts Festival is the only top national art festival that is produced each year by twenty dedicated, volunteer, working artists who serve on the Board. The distinctly artist-run event is committed to arts stewardship and reaches out to the community through Art, Education, and Entertainment. Art In The Pearl has long been a favorite in Portland, and it's the perfect Labor Day destination to gather and celebrate the end of summer." - Portland Monthly.

KGW SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE: Ends August 29th!
Times are tough, and back-to-school shopping can strain already tight budgets. Almost half of Portland's local kids don't have all the school supplies they need at the beginning of the year. Not to mention that teachers often spend out of pocket a range of $200-$1,000 to provide supplies to kids (KGW).
Here's How You Can Help:
There are less than a week left to raise money for over 1500 local school kids!
All donations stay inside the school district where they were made, so your money benefits students in your community.
Drop off supplies at either Downtown Self Storage location through August 29th. Downtown Self Storage will have a drop-off point at both Pearl District locations for supplies.
For more information on how to donate online and a supply list, check out our Blog here: www.downtownselfstorage.com/blog/kgw-back-to-school-drive
