W+K Portland’s new volunteer initiative W+K Cares will connect agency employees with the local Portland community. Charity team member Jessie Simmons of Account Services has shared her thoughts with us and described the first W+K outing: a trip to non-profit Zenger Farm. Check it out below.
A cancer diagnosis touches more than just the person receiving it – it radiates out, affecting family, friends and beyond. So when W+K’s Max Erdenberger heard about his friend Jack Marshall Shimko’s battle with Hodgkins Lymphoma and personal project to paddle 150 miles through the open ocean, he reached out to his W+K colleagues. WKE’s Janice Grube was especially moved by Jack’s story, having lost both her parents to cancer.
