B Corp Day of Service 2019
On February 21, 2019, B Local PDX hosted our first-ever annual Day of Service. The event was organized in response to the desire to create meaningful connections between B Corp businesses, local nonprofits, and our community. Although many B Corps offer paid volunteer time, we found out that for a variety of reasons only about 30% of it was being used. The Day of Service was designed to provide a meaningful volunteer experience to kickstart their connection with of causes that help people feel more empowered to serve our community. At the 2018 Day of Service, we had 250 people volunteering across 23 different opportunity sites with 16 nonprofit organizations.
