With the help of local community partners and the city of Portland, the Portland Timbers, T2 and Portland Thorns FC presented their fifth annual Stand Together Week in 2016. The comprehensive, week-long community initiative supported dozens of nonprofit projects and volunteer opportunities across the city.
Each year, the State of Oregon and City of Portland officially proclaim to be determined dates as the Portland Timbers Stand Together Week.
With the help of Hands On Greater Portland, and presenting partners adidas, Alaska Airlines, Coca-Cola, Daimler Trucks North America, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, KPTV FOX 12, Providence Health Plan, Simple, and University of Portland, more than 30 volunteer projects benefitting organizations focused on youth and the environment are offered across the Portland metro area. Fans are invited to volunteer and team up with mascot Timber Joey, select Timbers, T2 and Thorns FC players and club staff to better our community.
The volunteer opportunities affiliated with Stand Together Week, named after the Timbers’ community outreach platform, Stand Together, range from outdoor park and garden maintenance to construction projects and assisting in special youth and community initiatives. A complete schedule of activities and events will be posted to this page upon release, so stay tuned for the link to sign up for a project!
Since 2012, Stand Together Week participants donated 12,631 hours of service at more than 163 events benefitting youth and the environment in the greater-Portland area. Nonprofits served include Playworks, Growing Gardens, Active Children Portland and the Community Cycling Center, among many others.
