As a small business in the Portland, OR, area, we know how important it is to be involved with the local community. One of our main priorities beyond providing expert plumbing services is to be an active member of organizations and events that help the less fortunate. We are lucky to be in a position where we can impact change and we eagerly participate in a variety of activities around the area.
Partnering with other businesses
At Rescue Rooter®/Jack HowkSM, we are always looking to expand our community outreach wherever possible and aim to partner with other local businesses in the area. Whether it is joining forces to schedule an event, or co-sponsoring an existing community outreach experience, we are always on the lookout for opportunities to give back. We are blessed to provide our professional services to a loyal community and can think of no better way to give back than to get involved in local causes.
Race for the Roses
Employees with Clackamas-headquartered Rescue Rooter®/Jack HowkSM have participated in Albertina Kerr’s Race for the Roses. All net proceeds from the race benefited Albertina Kerr, a nonprofit that has been serving children, adults, and families in Oregon living with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges for more than 100 years.
In the Summer of 2015, Rescue Rooter®/Jack HowkSM launched its first-ever food drive for the Sunshine Division—a local charity that has partnered with the Portland Police Bureau for over 91 years. We collected non-perishable food items from the community and our customers in order to donate to Portland families in need. With schools closing for the summer, children in need often don’t know where their next meal will come from, which is why we have launched a food drive when they most need it.
American Red Cross
Rescue Rooter®/Jack HowkSM has been supporting the American Red Cross by holding blood drives since September 2014. This is a worthy cause that we continuously support through quarterly events. Participation has increased dramatically since we started. We even got the community and other local businesses involved.
A community-minded company
From food drives to charity races, Rescue Rooter®/Jack HowkSM is committed to fostering a sense of community whenever we are not fixing a leaking pipe. Being an active citizen has never been more important and being a helping hand to those who are in a tough place is the best way we can think of to make a positive impact in our local area. As we continue to grow as a company, we look forward to expanding our community outreach programs and partnering with other organizations. If you are involved in a local charity, food bank, homeless program, or other community service organization, please call us today.
