Street Roots Summer Fund Drive!

Dear friends of Street Roots,

Street Roots is in the middle of its summer fund-drive. Our goal is to reach $10,000 by September 15. We have currently raised $2, 124.00. We need your help to reach this goal.

The goal of Street Roots is to put money directly into the hands of poor people, while empowering people to take control of their own lives through flexible employment opportunities, socialization, creative expression, and advocacy.

“It helped us so much. From selling the newspaper we were actually able to save enough money to get an apartment,” says Annie Mitchell, a vendor with Street Roots. “It gave us a chance to make an honest living.” Street Roots has more than 60 vendors selling the newspaper in the community.

Street Roots was recently featured in the Willamette Week
  • WW
  • for its coverage of issues that connect to the entire community. Our hope as an organization is to provide Portland with professional alternative media, while establishing more incentives for vendors experiencing poverty. Your donation will go towards strengthening the organizations capacity to empower vendors, and publish a biweekly newspaper.

    Thank you for your generous support,

    You can also donate on-line at

  • Sincerely,

    Israel Bayer
