Part of our mission at NECC is to support the people and the work of the community. We do this through sharing our space with nonprofits or helping to organize community projects like clean-ups, informational campaigns, workshops, or even collaborative projects.
We believe that a strong community works together, and that NECC can lead the way through innovative partnerships, meaningful events, and lots of creativity. Please take some time to see more about our programs and find your place in the community through NECC.
Albertina Kerr Giving Tree
Each December, the NECC community donates gifts for local children and disabled adults. Many NECC members have received their “wings” from Albertina Kerr for giving to the group homes. Look for the Holiday Giving Tree in the NECC lobby each year after Thanksgiving.
Oregon Food Bank
The NECC community fills an average of three to four 55 gal food barrels each year for the Oregon Food Bank.
Portland Rose Festival Jr Parade
Each June, NECC members march in the parade. NECC also donates and sends volunteers to canvas local businesses for donations for the port-a-potties along the parade route. NECC volunteers work as parade monitors and greeters in the Hollywood area during the parade.
