Our past recipients are creating opportunities for connection and inclusivity through film festivals, thoughtful gifts to senior care centers and so much more. Hershey Heartwarming Grants offer recipients a $250 grant, in partnership with WE, to make their communities a better place to call home.

Delivering Groceries During the Pandemic

“I started PDX Concierge delivering groceries to my grandmother during the onset of the pandemic and have since grown to 50+ volunteers and 450+ deliveries made. By creating this service, I hope to keep people safe and support those who are facing food insecurity.”
