Keeping with tradition over the years, CMI is involved with several projects to help those in need during the holidays:
1) CMI will host a toy bin in the front entry of the Portland location building. Please bring: a new unwrapped toy appropriate for a child. The “Angels on Wheels Toy Run” is organized by the Multnomah Hot Rod Council, more information about the “run” they do on December 12th can be found on their website. http://www.mhrc.org/MHRCCalendar/tabid/91/ModuleID/433/ItemID/190/mctl/EventDetails/Default.aspx?selecteddate=12/12/2015. The bin is in the entry now!
2) We will again partner with the Sunshine Division on DECEMBER 11th, 2015 and invite clients and vendors to donate food at CMI’s Portland location, we welcome monetary donations in addition to food. Please invite anyone whom you think may like to attend. Santa will also be at this fun event!
3) CMI is also helping to support those in need in the China and Old town areas of Portland by helping feed more than 200 hungry people on Christmas day.
4) For a “closer to home” effort, CMI will be undertaking a large-scale effort to provide 50 individual bags of food and supplies to those who are homeless in the local community around the Portland office.
