With the holidays so quickly upon us, I thought it would be fitting to share some of my favorite non-profit organizations that serve the Portland metro area. This year has brought a fair amount of challenges and now more than ever these organizations need our support to serve our community. Jump in and check out these Portland-based organizations featured here with links to their giving sites:
1. Urban Gleaners
Urban Gleaners is an incredible nonprofit organization with a mission to rescue fresh and wholesome food to feed hungry kids and their families. You can get involved in their program by repacking/sorting of fresh foods that they coordinate in their warehouse, along with other volunteer work! Urban Gleaners is also a part of the Loving Room Fund with Living Room Realty, where a portion of our checks at each closing can go to this organization among a few others.
2. Taking Ownership PDX
3. Life Works
4. Transition Projects
5. Rose Haven
6. Oregon Wild
Last but not least, we have Oregon Wild. Oregon Wild is dedicated to preserving and protecting the valuable wildlands, wildlife, and waters. You can support Oregon Wild’s mission by volunteering or even participating in their Adopt A Wilderness program, where citizens pick a favorite area needing protection.
Which organization will you be giving back to this holiday season? Let me know. I wish you all a safe and happy holiday season!
