Urban League of Portland earns Anvil Media Charity of Choice Award for Q3 2020by Meg Riley on July 10, 2020Advertising
Anvil is passionate about giving back to the Portland community through our Charity of Choice program. Each quarter, we choose which local non-profit will receive pro-bono marketing services from us, a total value of $2,500. Our team chose five organizations that represent causes that are important to us and we put them in a poll administered through social media.
We’re excited to partner this quarter with the Urban League of Portland, empowering Black communities in Oregon and Southwest Washington since 1945. Urban League of Portland is one of Oregon’s oldest civil rights and social service organizations, empowering African-Americans and others to achieve equality in education, employment, health, economic security and quality of life.
We began our Charity of Choice program because we wanted to bring value to local organizations through our work, as opposed to monetary assistance. This is a staple on which our President and Founder, Kent Lewis, has founded Anvil. He prides himself on forming a team that wants to contribute to the community, to delight and elevate it. You can learn more about it on our community outreach page.
Past winners have included The Oregon Humane Society, Mercy Corps Northwest, Blue Mountain Wildlife, among others. Thank you to everyone who participated this quarter and in the past!
