Thank you for making Impact NW part of your holiday tradition!

You helped us raise over $50,000 and donated thousands of gifts for families throughout the Portland, OR region.

You made an impact this year.

Your generosity in giving back this holiday season made a big difference in the lives of your neighbors right here in the Portland-Vancouver area. By donating gifts through our Giving Garlands and hosting Employee Giving Drives, our community of support reached far and wide.

Over 2,500 gifts were donated through our Giving Garlands, generating a value of over $15,000

More than 25 local businesses hosted Giving Garlands

Over 1,000 warm coats and hundreds of hats, scarves, and shoes were donated during our coat drive.

Over 50 free haircuts and beard trims were provided to our clients.

WHAT OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS LOVE:

“We wanted to make as big an impact as possible this season. It feels good to give back; Impact NW’s mission aligns with our values and the way we run our business. We’re proud to support our community this holiday season.”

– Cristen Lincoln, Broker – Living Room Realty

SPECIAL RECOGNITION: THE UGLY SWEATER TROPHIES

To show our gratitude for the generosity of our partners and community of support, we awarded three “Ugly Sweater” trophies to those who went above and beyond to give back this season. At a celebration event at The Nines Hotel, the trophies were presented in front of an audience of Impact NW staff and family, donors, board members, and business partners.

Bishops Barbershop has supported Impact NW during the holiday season for three years, providing free haircut days for clients, and hosting giving garlands at their 13 retail locations throughout the Portland metro area. As an added bonus, anyone who dropped off a gift at Bishops received a coupon for a discounted haircut. Thank you to Bishops Barbershop for their continued generosity and support of our Holiday Hope Drive!

Impact NW staff played an important role in spreading the word about our mission and goals for the Holiday Hope Drive. Dozens of staff members posted about Impact NW on their social media channels, encouraging friends and family to learn more about who we are and what we do. The Staff Socialite trophy was awarded to an Impact NW staff member who went above and beyond in spreading the word.

Propeller is a valued partner of Impact NW, always willing to volunteer and give back with a positive attitude and hard work. Not only did Propeller sign on as a sponsor of the Holiday Hope Drive, but they volunteered to pick up gifts from our giving garland retail sites, delivering them to our Dancing Tree Family Center for easy distribution to our clients. Thank you, Propeller, for your incredible support!
