This Thursday hails the arrival of the holiday fundraiser, Bake America Great Again.

It was at Pip’s then, but this year it’s at Level Beer, located at 5211 NE 148th Avenue in Northeast Portland. Preemptive Love Coalition and RIHO will be the recipients of the donations.

The Lumberyard—a local business, and one that was affected, though only lightly—has counted their lucky stars and organized a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for those who did not fare as well.
