We are excited to announce that Schoolhouse Supplies will be featured on the Oregon Public House charity list throughout the months of October, November, and December! The Oregon Public House is the world’s first nonprofit pub donating 100% of its net proceeds to the nonprofit organizations on their charity list. The charity list rotates often, allowing them to support up to 10 deserving organizations at one time.
The Oregon Public House’s success is due not only to the fact that they serve delicious food and drinks, but that they are also completely run by volunteers including the board! Volunteers are always welcome to come and be greeters, servers, and most importantly, advocates for their charity.
Being operated by volunteers enables the pub to really maximize their contribution, therefore their results are incredible, within two weeks of opening in 2010, Oregon Public House was able to give $2,000 to their benefitting charities! Since then, their impact has grown to an estimated $100,000 annually!
There are many ways that you can get involved in this fantastic opportunity and support Schoolhouse Supplies!
Obviously, come to eat and drink at the Oregon Public House! Their menu is loaded with mouthwatering food and irresistible drinks. There’s also a Happy Hour daily from 2 pm- 6pm and 9pm – close! The space is family friendly, so don’t hesitate to tote along the little ones.
Next, we would love to have you come and represent Schoolhouse Supplies as a greeter or server at the pub. To volunteer , email firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know that you’d like to help out. Volunteers are “paid” with a beer and a meal. #PERKS
The Pub also has a beautiful ballroom that can be rented and its proceeds can be designated to your choice of nonprofit! The Village Ballroom is perfect for weddings, dances, concerts, and any special event .
We are so fortunate to be on the charity list for Oregon Public House, and we hope to see you there enjoying a bite to eat or as a volunteer!
