We believe in giving back.
It's our privilege to give back to so many incredible organizations that strengthen communities and help individuals grow and gain confidence. Sometimes a person just needs a little help, and we believe that every person—regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, income, or sexual orientation—deserves a chance. By partnering with non-profits aimed at ending cycles of abuse, addiction, homelessness, and poverty, we can make a real impact on human suffering.
Through charitable giving, we support a multitude of charities across the United States and Canada. And through our Volunteer Paid Time-Off policy that encourages employees to donate time to a non-profit of their choice, we have an immediate and tangible effect on our own community of Portland, Oregon.
In 2020, we partnered with Providence Medical Group to facilitate the distribution of our smile-inducing fun socks to 10 of their foundation locations here in Oregon. We originally donated 115 pairs, and with your help we were able to donate even more!
Recent charity partners include:
