On Thursday, November 18th, 2021, Vermeer’s will be hosting an event to give back to our amazing community. Join us from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. when the lights go down for a self-guided walk through of our store. It will be an enchanting experience that you do not want to miss!

Representatives from Open Arms Mission will be collecting both food and monetary donations throughout the evening. While we will not be charging an entry fee for this event, we kindly ask and encourage all attendees to bring a non-perishable food donation or provide a monetary donation. As a thank you, attendees that bring a non-perishable food donation or provide a monetary donation will receive an early access coupon for our annual Christmas sale.

Tickets will not be required for this event and you do not need to RSVP. Entry will be on a first come first served basis. Please note that attendees will not be able to shop during the event as we want to make sure that all who are interested get to see our mesmerizing Christmas displays in a timely manner while also ensuring that we are following all COVID-19 safety protocols. On November 18th, Vermeer’s will be closing at 4:30 p.m. to allow for a smooth transition into the event which begins at 5 p.m.

Enjoy live orchestral music and take in not only the dazzling sights, but also the beautiful sounds of the Christmas season.

Free hot beverages will be available while supplies last.

Supporting a fantastic organization like Open Arms Mission can have a tremendous positive impact on those in our community who may be struggling. That is why Vermeer’s will be partnering with some other generous organizations to help raise money for Open Arms Mission and will be matching monetary donations up to $10,000!

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, help support those in need and experience Vermeer’s in all its holiday glory! We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, November 18th, 2021!

If you can’t make it to our Merry & Bright – A Night of Lights event, there are some other ways you can contribute to a good cause!

For the entire month of November, Vermeer’s will be collecting food donations for Open Arms Mission. If you plan on doing some holiday shopping at our store during the month of November, please consider bringing in a non-perishable food donation. As a thank you, anyone who brings in a donation for the November food drive will receive a coupon for 10% off one Christmas product. More details are available in-store.

Don’t forget about our Giving Tree! A few years ago we started a tradition called The Giving Tree in which we donated the proceeds from the sale of a specific ornament to local charities. The Giving Tree ornament for 2021 is a beautiful acrylic dove. We also have a festive red cardinal and acrylic snowflakes available while supplies last. Help us continue this wonderful tradition and raise money to support Open Arms Mission, Rose City Kids and Pathstone Mental Health. Giving tree ornaments are $6.99 each and are available for purchase both in-store and online.

If you are purchasing a floral arrangement or indoor mixed planter for someone special, consider having it giftwrapped! The cost of giftwrapping is $2 per item (no tax), but for the month of November all of the proceeds from our $2 giftwrapping charge will be donated to Gillian’s Place. Please note that we only giftwrap using clear cellophane and ribbon. We do not have any wrapping paper or decorative bags.
