2 ways you can help save lives this summer, plus scholarship winners

Now through August 31, help us fight summer hunger. Purchase an icon to provide essential items to the Oregon Food Bank for local families

Join us to help fight summer hunger!

Unitus is honored to partner with the Oregon Food Bank for another campaign to fight Summer Hunger! We’re calling all members to help give back directly to those in your community.

You can help!

Now through August 31, stop by any branch. For every dollar you give, we’ll put up an apple or orange paper giving gram!

For every $10 we raise, Oregon Food Bank can provide 30 meals to people going hungry.

Don’t have time to make it to a branch? Donate online through our Facebook page!

Special Thanks to CU Student Choice

Finally, I’d like to thank our student loan partner CU Student Choice for their gift of an extra $1,000 scholarship in celebration of their 10th Anniversary! Thanks to their generous gift, we were able to support the family member of a Unitus employee with college expenses.

Congratulations to Portia P. on winning this scholarship! (Pictured here with President/ CEO Steve Stapp)

Now is the time to give blood!

Did you know that blood is most valuable when donated in the summer?

Get this: In the summer, the blood supply drops by 20%! Blood donations become that much more helpful in these months.

Donate while it's hot! Bloodworks NW

You can help!

On Wednesday, August 28, the Bloodworks NW team will be at our Plaza Headquarters (1300 SW 6th Avenue, Portland) from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Did you know? Bloodworks NW provides 55% of the blood given in the Portland area. They are the sole provider to all Providence and Legacy hospitals in Oregon along with more than 90 other hospitals in the Pacific Northwest.
