Portland, OR. Oregon’s largest and longest-running volunteer expo returned to Pioneer Square for its ninth year on September 7th. The Standard’s Volunteer Expo brought together more than 125 nonprofits to help Oregonians discover volunteer and donation opportunities that fit their skills and interests.

Volunteer Expo attendees had a chance to learn about a wide variety of nonprofits, like the Children’s Book Bank, that make a difference in the community. Participating organizations represented the arts, culture, the environment, animal welfare, human services and more. If you didn’t have a chance to attend, we’ve got a look at some of the organizations represented, and a complete list below.
