What a simply brilliant day of service! Close to 300 CBI members volunteered throughout our community to make the world a better place. A gigantic thank you to you all!

We assembled 400 hygiene care kits for Blanchet House. We built planters for Cascadia Clusters. We sang for the residents of Cedar Sinai Park. We created powerful art for Children’s Healing Art Project and the Soul Box Project. We created 100 welcome home kits for Community Warehouse. We beautified CBI’s cemetery. We removed graffiti from around our city. We made dog treats and cat toys for the Oregon Humane Society. We assembled food sacks for Portland Backpack. We collected donations for Portland Refugee Support Group. We cleaned up Powell Butte Nature Park. We inventoried new merchandise for Project Lemonade. We organized food donations at LiftUP.We made 500 sack lunches for Transition Projects. And we donated blood to the American Red Cross. What a day!

Please let us know how we can do better next year or if you have any ideas for new and exciting projects. 

We hope you all felt you made a difference, helped build community and had a blast! Again, thank you!
