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.
Fine Art & Cool Craft Show and Sale – November 4
Since 2009, the NECC has held a Fall Fine Art & Cool Craft Show & Sale. This one-day event attracts talented local artists who exhibit and sell their unique handmade items. This community event is open to the public, and local businesses support this event by providing snacks, pastries & coffee for attendees. Complementary wine is generously donated by NECC Members, and for 2016, the Jazz Kats trio will be performing throughout the evening. This event is a wonderful opportunity for neighbors to gather, support local artists, and finish some early holiday shopping.
We realize Summer is just starting; but know you are planning your holiday
shows already. We would like to invite you to participate in our 2016 NE
Community Center’s Fine Art and Cool Craft Show and Sale on Friday,
November 4, 2016. We are doing things a bit different this year and trying
out a “one evening event” from 4-8 pm with a live jazz combo, complimentary
wine, cheese, snacks, raffles and fun!
If interested, please review the attached Call to Artist and Vendor
Application and Terms of Participation documents and apply by September 15,
2016. This is a juried sale.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at this address.
Thank you in advance for considering our show. We would love to have you!

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, and NECC volunteers work as parade monitors and greeters in the Hollywood area during the parade.
Halloween Spirit Celebration
Every year the NECC’s gymnasium is transformed into an old-fashioned carnival full of booths and games for one frighteningly fantastic afternoon. Participants wear their best costumes, and the NECC provides tricks and treats. Admission is a can of food which is donated to the Oregon Food Bank. The event is generously support by our Community Partners: The Pea Pod Family Resource Center, Inc., Spark Arts, Hollywood Library, Albina Bank and more. Recommended for children up to age ten, who must be accompanied by an adult.
