Focus on p:ear Partner: Rejuvenation

Pear - Creatively Mentoring Homeless Youth

For a small, entrepreneurial organization like p:ear community partners are essential for program support and keeping the lights on. For the past year, Rejuvenation has supported p:ear’s work by donating proceeds from various events such as their recent lecture on Robert Rummer and from their grand re-opening last November. Why would a lighting and hardware store care about homeless youth? After being connected to p:ear through board member Peter Bro, Nicole Curcio Rejuvenation’s public relations and events specialists, explains why Rejuvenation decided to support p:ear:

 

Rejuvenation has always been active in the Portland community and made donations to organizations that help support vibrant, sustainable communities where our employees and customers live and work.

During our first meeting with Pippa, her passion for the kids and creating long-lasting mentoring relationships was infectious, and partnering with them seemed like an obvious choice. What I find most impressive about p:ear is that it is a grassroots, hands-on group of people who really believe in what they’re doing and it shows.

 

We are so thankful for both Rejuvenation’s support and donations!
