North Staff Join Community Volunteer Corps in Service Project at the ReBuilding Center

Monday, December 13, 2010

Fifteen staff members (plus a consultant and the bus driver!) from  North joined the Community Volunteer Corps (CVC) team at the ReBuilding Center on Friday, December 10th.  CVC provides meaningful volunteer opportunities to CCC clients. Over a three-month period, they volunteer for 80 hours learning new skills, improving work habits and preparing themselves for permanent work. The program recently surpassed 16,000 hours of service to community.

For the past three years, North, a Portland ad agency, has opted to do a half-day service project instead of a lavish holiday party. Working with CVC participants, the volunteers transferred huge piles of wood siding and  moved dozens of sinks onto new shelving at theReBuilding Center.

“It was great having North join us,” said Adrienne Karecki, Director of CCC’s Business Enterprises that operates the CVC program. “We love seeing local businesses engaged in community service over the holidays.  The ReBuilding Center is one of our many non-profit partners and we were delighted to give them an extra dose of help this month.”
