Social Purpose Works, MFS’s new program pairing pro-bono professionals with non-profits, was recently featured on MetroEast Community Hotline! SPW is unique in its focus on using professionally skilled volunteers to tackle capacity building projects.
Nearly 20,000 charitable nonprofits across Oregon positively impact our communities every day. Oregon’s nonprofits are one of the ways Oregonians show love for our communities and our state.
Although charitable giving occurs throughout the year, the fourth quarter of each year is a critical fundraising time for nonprofits. As a result of the changes to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, we want to ensure Oregon nonprofits are at the forefront of people’s minds during this giving season. To encourage Oregonians to give generously to support them, the Nonprofit Association of Oregon created this short video – Care Like An Oregonian.
Last Thursday, MFS Hunger Relief programs held a Vietnamese cooking class at West Powellhurst, led by MFS Hunger Relief AmeriCorps member Thu Le, and two Vietnamese community members. They taught parents, students and volunteers how to make Vietnamese salad rolls and peanut sauce, sticky coconut rice, and a Vietnamese chicken and vegetable soup. 🥥🍲🍴
