Community Connections

We’ve got our Community Connections event coming up this Thursday. All are welcome to attention. Details below:

What: A Community Workshop – Learn from a panel of local non-profit organizations how you and your company can positively impact our community. Walk away from the session with concrete ideas on how to involve your employees in activities and programs that have a huge difference in the lives of others. From volunteer opportunities to in-kind giving to partnership programs, you don’t have to be big to have a big impact!

Where:
Community Warehouse – 3969 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Portland, Oregon, 97212 (intersection of MLK & NE Shaver).

When:
February 18th from 4:30 -6:00 pm.

Who:
Business owners, Human Resources, Office Managers / Administrators and anyone who wants to engage their organization in community service.

Details:
4:30 pm – Start off the evening at the Community Warehouse Estate Store. Browse and socialize while enjoying wine and cheese. Every dollar spent in the store helps support families in the community. The unique inventory of antique, vintage, and retro furniture, housewares, and collectibles are priced to keep you coming back! Check out the items in advance at the link below: http://communitywarehouse.wordpress.com/category/price/16-20/

Everyone will find a way to connect with this group of organizations – from the love of animals or the environment, to supporting households in transition or a strong belief in mentorship and advocacy. Join us for this unique opportunity to see that it’s not just about money, but leveraging your time and ideas to create value!

This is the first in a quarterly series of meetings / workshops designed to bring together Portland’s business and non profit communities. Designed to encourage maximum interaction between the participants, each of these unique events will showcase a local non profit facility and create an opportunity for education and discussion of how businesses can more deeply engage with community organizations. Connect on a personal level and see how you can become a better community steward.
