Shop for a Cause Day Presented By Machias Savings Bank

Saturday, November 25, 2017 • All Day

What do you get when you combine fabulous holiday shopping and the spirit of giving? Shop for a Cause Day, of course!

When you shop at any of our participating locations on Saturday, November 25th, a portion of your purchase will directly benefit Amistad, a Peer Support and Recovery Center in Portland. This incredible nonprofit organization provides a safe and welcoming community for adults who struggle with mental illness, addiction, and other life challenges and – since its inception in 1982 — it has grown into Maine’s largest peer community. To learn more about the work and impact of Amistad, please click here.

Shop for a Cause, now held twice a year, aims to raise money and awareness for local organizations like Amistad, while also supporting our amazing small business community. It’s a win-win for all, so shop your heart out to make a difference this holiday season! #shopforacause #sfac

Get ready for a fun & festive day

New this year: Our wonderful Presenting Sponsor — Machias Savings Bank — is kicking off Shop for a Cause Day in style. From 10am-12pm on Saturday, you can swing by their 193 Middle Street branch to:

  • Pick up a complimentary reusuable shopping bag (while supplies last)
  • Get your orange “Shop for a Cause” stickers (wear them proudly as you shop & stroll!)
  • Grab a handy list of all 50 participating locations (how many can you visit?)

Plus: You’ll have a chance to meet some of the friendly folks from Amistad, Machias Savings Bank, and Portland Downtown. We look forward to saying “hello” and wishing you a happy holiday season!
