Inspiring work by these dedicated people in honor of Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service with Kaiser Permanente in support of the good works in the community by Transition Projects ! Almost 200 volunteers arrived onsite ready to roll up their sleeves to help make the Transition Projects Argyle Gardens a home. This innovative housing project will provide more than 70 formerly homeless people with a safe, clean place to live. Thank you to Kaiser Permanente for their devotion to community and for organizing the day, to all of the wonderful volunteers and to our onsite Superintendents Nick Cardoza and Mario Hernandez for their exceptionally thoughtful and well organized logistics plan to keep all volunteers and visitors safe and working. Thank you to so many others who are helping make this inspiring event a success for all.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of Commissioner Nick Fish, a thoughtful and determined advocate for the community and in particular those in need of affordable housing and those experiencing homelessness. We are grateful to have worked with him on many community building projects throughout Portland and his tremendous efforts will leave a positive and lasting impact on all the lives he helped to support through his longstanding commitment as a public servant. We send our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones.
As the year and decade draws to a close, we are grateful to reflect on the people, partners and projects that have contributed to the health and wellness of our company and our greater community throughout the Northwest. Wishing you all a safe and fulfilling New Year! We look forward to continuing the work of building communities and empowering people in 2020.
