Anvil has already totaled more than 190 hours of pro bono or in-kind services to Oregon non-profits in 2014. Other organizations receiving services include the Vestibular Disorders Association and the Northwest Film Center’s Portland International Film Festival.
Since 2011 Anvil has provided quarterly cash donations to deserving local organizations. Employees nominate local organizations and then Anvil enlists the public to select the recipient by voting on its Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/
Anvil also believes in actively volunteering in the community, providing a volunteer opportunity for the team each quarter. The first volunteering outing of 2014 was held at the Oregon Food Bank where the team packaged a total of 10,641 pounds of food or the equivalent of 8,876 meals for Oregonians in need.
“Having been a part of the Portland community for 14 years, I believe supporting our local community is an excellent way for Anvil to give back,” said Kent Lewis, Anvil Media President and Founder. “We also understand different organizations have different needs and that’s why we focus on giving back in a variety of tangible ways.”
Another community outreach initiative of Anvil’s is hosting a local networking group. pdxMindShare hosts monthly workshops and networking events as well as supporting job seekers through a weekly email of upcoming events and job opportunities in the Portland area.
