EastBurn Gives Back to Buckman

The EastBurn restaurant had started a benefit program for Buckman Elementary as part of their neighborhood involvement. And we all need to spread the word! Whenever someone dines at EastBurn and fills in the Buckman Elementary phone number on their guest receipt, EastBurn will donate 5% of the monthly total of receipts. They will track this using their EastBurn VIP points program and all guests are welcome to accumulate points for their own VIP account, as well as include the Buckman Elementary account for their visit. In December, 2015, Buckman Elementary supporters raised $43 for the school by dining at EastBurn. The restaurant plans to continue this promotion for all of 2016 and hopes to make a significant contribution.

Visit, dine and contribute by going to:

The EastBurn  /  1800 E. Burnside St, Portland, OR 97214
