Everybody has a story. This is an opportunity for you to hear ours. The best way we can tell you who we are is to hear what others say about what we do. As the articles, TV stories and audio interviews will show, Positive Charge! PDX is passionate about amplifying kindness. Whether we focus on encouraging individuals to embrace the amazing diversity of our community or on offering assistance to neighbors who need our help, we are dedicated to our mission and to those we serve.
