This morning, City Council welcomed Becky Blumer, Executive Director at Hands On Portland, Christa Thoeresz, Community Relations Director for the Portland Timbers, and Timber Joey to proclaim August 4 – 10, 2013 as Portland Timbers Stand Together Week!
Stand Together Week is a call to action by the City, the Portland Timbers, and our community partners to inspire people to give back through community service. The week-long celebration brings together nearly 1,000 volunteers from our community in an effort to support local, mission-driven non-profits.
Last year Stand Together Week totaled 1,454 hours of service hours. This year, participate in close to 30 projects and give back to your community!
Community projects include building homes, tending gardens, restoring local parks, pulling ivy, painting schools, and much more.
To find an event or sign up to volunteer for Portland Timbers Stand Together Week, visit the Hands on Greater Portland website.
