The second annual Day of Service event was organized in response to the desire to create meaningful connections between B Corp businesses, local nonprofits, and our community. Many B Corps offer paid volunteer time, and we want to provide an opportunity for folks to take advantage of that benefit. The Day of Service is designed to provide a meaningful volunteer experience to kickstart their connection with of causes that help people feel more empowered to serve our community.
B Local PDX, along with help from some amazing sponsors, will be hosting a volunteer celebration at the end of the day for people to share and reflect on the impact and meaning of their service. This is a great opportunity for you to be part of a single day that will have a positive ripple effect throughout our city. During this celebration, we will also share the stats on our collective impact for the day and engage in further learning with our nonprofit partners.
On March 19, 2020 we’ll have multiple volunteer shifts at different nonprofits opportunities from 9 am – 12 pm and 1-4pm. Then we’ll come back to celebrate together from 6-9pm at Portland Internetworks – 419 NE 10th Ave (map).
Please note the deadline to sign up for this opportunity is March 16, 2020, so that we can give our partner organizations sufficient notice to prepare for our groups of volunteers.
Thanks to our sponsors:
