Stand Together Week continued its busy pace Wednesday with numerous projects and volunteers lending a hand.

Portland Timbers players Tega Ikoba and Hunter Sulte worked alongside volunteers from Providence at Habitat for Humanity for a home construction project in SE Portland. Later, Timbers Academy staffers worked with Providence and Coca-Cola volunteers at the Sunshine Division to prepare boxes and sort food.

Over at Trillium Family Services, Timbers and Thorns FC CEO Heather Davis and VP of Community and Social Impact Dr. Robin Beavers worked with a host of Timbers, Thorns and Timbers2 players including Eryk Williamson, Diego Gutiérrez, Justin Rasmussen, Dario Zuparic, Aljaz Ivacic, Eric Miller, Noah Caliskan, Diego Chara, Dairon Asprilla, Natalia Kuikka, Josh Penn, Jaden Jones-Riley, Tyler Clegg and Selmir Miscic to help restore the organization's community garden.

Good cheer was spread at Doernbecher Children's Hospital as Timbers players Evander, Antony, assistant coach Liam Ridgewell and general manager Ned Grabavoy joined Thorns Michelle Vasconcelos, Tegan McGrady and Taylor Porter to meet with youth and hand out Timbers and Thorns blankets and gear.

Finally, the day ended with a large group joining Providence to help in Forest Grove at Adelante Mujeres' Farmer's Market. Thorns forward Hannah Betfort joined goalkeeping coach Nadine Angerer as well as Timbers Zac McGraw, Marvin Loría and Bryan Acosta plus T2's Victor Griffith, Florián Monzón, Ryan Bilichuk and Kessean Ferdinand as the group set up and worked throughout the community market.
