Each year, the State of Oregon and City of Portland officially proclaim the week as the Portland Timbers & Thorns FC Stand Together Week.

With the help of presenting partners Alaska Airlines, Allstate, Coke, Daimler, Danner Boots, Enterprise, Hampton Lumber, KPTV, New Relic and Providence Health & Services, 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 alongside their favorite Portland Timbers, Thorns and T2 players, as well as the team mascot and club staff at fun projects to better our community.  

The volunteer opportunities affiliated with Stand Together Week, named after the Timbers’ community outreach platform, Stand Together, include building homes, creating healing gardens, restoring local parks, pulling ivy, leading soccer clinics, cleaning children’s books, and more.

Since 2012, Stand Together Week has mobilized 5,395 volunteers to provide the Portland metro area with 18,290 hours of service at more than 226 events benefitting youth and the environment. Nonprofits served include Active Children Portland, The Children's Book Bank, Growing Gardens, Harper's Playground, and the Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Foundation, among many others.
