Here in Portland, we love local and we love to support each other’s local businesses. But sometimes, we forget to help ALL of our community by volunteering to help those in need. There are many, many non-profits in Portland, and a great way to get involved is through Hands On Greater Portland.
If you’re afraid you don’t have the psychical capabilities to help or volunteer, use your creative strengths and offer to photograph an event, design a flyer, or build a website. Idealist.org is a great website for artsy volunteer opportunities and this Flavorwire article lists a few other organizations.
We offer a 10% discount to local non-profits and want to hear how you help others in need through services, activites, or education! Tell us about what you’ve done in our comment sections.
