EPBB's Susan Anderson and Marc Baker, showing off our yearly donations.
On Friday, December 2, we had our 4th annual Holiday Open House, which is open to our partners in the Pacific Northwest insurance industry. We charge admission: non-perishable food, which we donate to the Oregon Food Bank. This year was our biggest year yet, with over 100 attendees. The total amount of food collected has yet to be weighed, but we're confident it's going to be "lots."
A special thanks goes to Ron Rothert Insurance Services, Inc. In addition to accepting food, we also accept cash donations. This year, for the 3rd year in a row, Ron Rothert donated $1000. EPBB employee Susan Salgado raised about $300 by selling hand-made earrings, and the annual raffle brought the total take to nearly $2000. We'll be accepting additional donations until Dec. 14, in the lobby of our location in downtown Portland.

We also had a cubicle-decorating contest. Pictured above is "Pirate Cubicle". Other themes included "candyland" and "purple Christmas." Guests got to vote on their favorite cube or office, and the top 4 vote-getters won prizes. Huber's sent over a bartender who made Spanish Coffees, and Rogue Creamery was sampling their cheeses.
On August 25th several of our staff members helped Portland Homeless Family Solutions (PHFS) assemble baskets for participants in their 14 week parenting classes. Each successful participant will receive useful items like popcorn, DVD's, movie gift cards, bus passes and games to enjoy as a family. Employees from EPB&B were able to contribute many of the items that will be passed along to participants. Way to go team EPB&B !!
