On December 8th, 2016, we presented the Pike Place Market Foundation with a $10,000 donation raised by our employees. The funds will be used to support Pike Market Childcare and Preschool. The Preschool currently serves 101 children from three months to five years old. Last year about 70% of children received tuition assistance, made possible by generous support from numerous individuals and organizations.

The Pike Place Market Foundation fills a big need in the local community, providing senior care, food bank, a health clinic, housing assistance, and more.
The Foundation’s Programs
Employees at Moxi Works have been involved in a variety of fundraising efforts throughout 2016 to support our goal of helping kids and families in need. It started last January at our annual kickoff party with our CEO, York Baur, getting his head shaved! The head shaving raised $1,000 alone.

The crew here at Moxi Works is very creative and came up with a variety activities that raised money including pub trivia nights, auctions and equipment sales, pay-to-play March Madness brackets, and more. Most of our employees also contribute directly by making automatic payroll deductions. It’s a big team effort and we do it all year long.
Presenting to the Pike Place Market Foundation
Big thanks again this year to our many business partners and vendors who graciously contributed to our fundraising efforts. We greatly appreciate your support.
We are all looking forward to continuing in 2017 helping youth and families in our community.
Helping Others on Community Service Day
The crew here at Moxi Works recently spent the day volunteering at Ryther’s Seattle campus. Ryther is a leader in psychiatric and behavioral health services for children and their families facing complex challenges. The work they do is incredibly impactful; helping kids and our broader community.
In typical Moxi style, we broke up into groups and took on several projects at once. We washed and cleaned five of their vans for their Aspiring Youth program this summer. We built a new tool shed for storing their gardening tools. We cleaned weeds out of numerous flower beds and spread a dump truck load of garden mulch.
We covered a patio with new stone pavers. And we built two new sandboxes and filled them with new sand. Whew! It was a lot of work, but all for a great cause.
And a special thanks to the employees at Ryther who had everything organized and ready for the day. You work at a very special place. Keep up the great work! We really enjoyed the day.
