Two Mother’s Day Fundraisers Benefit Mary’s Place and Seattle Public Schools

Order a bouquet from Friendly Hmong Farms by May 10th to support SPS.

Buy Mother’s Day flowers in support of Seattle Public Schools

Show your love of mom and support the Seattle Public School of your choice by purchasing a beautiful bouquet from much-loved Friendly Hmong Farms,

Order a Mother’s Day Bouquet (by May 10th!) and local Hmong farmers will handcraft a spectacular mixed floral arrangement for you to pick up at one of 15 schools across Seattle on May 13th or La Pasta (Queen Anne and Wedgewood), Mighty-O Donuts (Ballard, Capitol Hill, Denny Triangle, and Greenlake), Cowen Park Grocery (Ravenna) and Columbia City on May 14th. Local volunteers will greet you and you will get to select a bouquet from among the abundance of colors, scents, and blooms delivered fresh that morning.

You designate a school of your choice to receive a $10 donation and Friendly Hmong Farms will match that donation to the South East Schools Educational Coalition to support Title I schools across the district.

Bouquets start at $59 ($100 for two bouquets). If you don’t want to pick up your bouquet, a fee of  $29 (per address) will be added for delivery within the Seattle city limits. Quantities limited.   For more information go to the farm’s website.

Mother’s Day Meal Kits – All Proceeds go to Mary’s Place

Let’s face it, when you pull together all the ingredients to make a comprehensive Mother’s Day brunch for the mom in your life, the costs sneak up. Even with inflation starting to ease, it’s hard to collect everything needed for a special meal for under $100. 

Kitchen & Market, a grocery store and restaurant-quality meal kit maker with locations in Seattle, Mercer Island, and Medina, will get you there for less than that. The company is now accepting orders for its $95 Mother’s Day Brunch meal kits – with 100% of kit proceeds going to Mary’s Place shelter

About Mary’s Place

Since 1999, Mary’s Place has helped thousands of women and families move out of homelessness into more stable situations. The organization operates five emergency family shelters in King County and provides parents with the resources needed to get back on their feet. Kitchen & Market hope their fundraising brunch kids will bring in $15,000 for the shelter.

Company founder Stephanie King and her daughter Hannah first launched the Mother’s Day Brunch benefit in 2020. Says King: “Offering a delicious brunch to pamper Mom is a no-brainer for me, but so is helping the community of mothers in our area.” 

Meal kit details 

The Mother’s Day Brunch meal kit feeds 4-6 people and includes everything

needed along with easy prep instructions. This year’s menu includes:

  • spring frittata with asparagus and ricotta-chèvre
  • crispy breakfast potatoes
  • frisée salad with thick-cut bacon bits
  • granola parfaits with chia yogurt and fresh berries
  • and warm scones with raspberry jam and whipped mascarpone.

You can pre-order kits starting April 25. They will be available for in-store pickup or home delivery. 

Send flowers to sheltering mom

If brunch is not on your Mother’s Day agenda, Kitchen & Market has another way to celebrate a mom. Order a floral bouquet through the Mother’s Day Brunch webpage and it will be delivered to a mom currently being served by Mary’s Place.
