Spring Downtown Worker Appreciation Day a Great Success!

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the first-ever Spring Downtown Worker Appreciation Day!  In spite of the unseasonable chilly weather (it felt more like October than May!), our steadfast volunteers gave out 600 goodie bags along with hundreds of newspapers, mugs, muffins, cookies, coffee and more to people heading into work on Thursday, May 5th.

Now in its third year since being revived by Portland Buy Local in partnership with Portland’s Downtown District, Downtown Worker Appreciation Day is at once a celebration of and promotional event geared to Portland’s downtown workforce with free food, coffee, beverages and coupon-stuffed gift bags.

We’re also happy to report that we’ve been hearing very positive feedback from participating businesses and downtown workers, alike. If you have thoughts or ideas relating to Downtown Worker Appreciation Day, please contact us.

Our thanks to Zwickerhill Photography for providing this photo from Tommy’s Park.
