Portlanders are a kind and generous lot and volunteer their time early and often across a variety of causes. In 2011 the Huffington Post ranked Portland the second most generous city in the country.  In fact, 36.2 percent of residents volunteer almost 43 hours annually.  Impressive!  Now recycle those cardboard boxes and connect with an organization that will make the Portland area an even better place to live.
