The Portland Relocation Council is committed to giving back to our community, and improving the lives of those in need.
Through auctions and raffle items, PRC has raised over $8000 since 2015 for our local nonprofit organization, JOIN. A portion of these funds along with additional donations have filled over 80 backpacks with essential school supplies and gift cards for those struggling to cover the ever-increasing cost of back-to-school shopping. In September a group of 20 volunteers spent 4 hours at the JOIN offices, organizing, painting, shredding and assisting the office with tasks needed to continue to help support the community
The Portland Relocation Council continues to help local nonprofit organizations. In our history, we have supported needy families by providing over $10,000 in cash donations, over 1000 pounds of canned foods, toiletries and 100's of toys. We chose to support JOIN in the Portland Metro area, which exists to support the efforts of homeless individuals and families to transition out of homelessness into permanent housing. Last year, JOIN helped 560 of our homeless neighbors move off the streets and into the safety of permanent housing. They could not have done this without the support of generous friends like you. We are all neighbors, working together to create a better community for everyone. Learn more about how you can get involved with JOIN. JOIN is always in need of basic items. See their wish list here.
If you would like more information on the organizations we support, or would like to nominate an organization please contact our Social Responsibility Chair Ross Buckley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PRC members are filled with hearts of grace and generosity and we are helping make a difference in people's lives. Thank you again to all those associated with the Portland Relocation Council!
