125 care packages were donated to Multnomah County Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in Gresham, Oregan. This donation was part of our GiveAFriend Holiday initiative. From Thanksgiving through Giving Tuesday, SendAFriend shut down the store for normal sales and focused solely on giving. During that time, our GiveAFriend program remained open and we asked that our fluffy friends be purchased for donation during the most thankful time of year. These stuffed animal care packages brought a little extra love and holiday cheer to those that need it most.
