Leading footwear maker Nike's Portland Factory Store hosted representatives from 20 neighborhood nonprofits today for its annual grant program award ceremony commemorating the donation of $5,000 grants to each organization for its efforts around promoting youth physical activity; education and mentoring; or economic development for minorities, women and youth.

Over the last 21 years, Nike's business presence in Northeast Portland has helped create jobs and foster economic growth, as well as resulting in $1.1 million in corporate donations to non-profit organizations in the local area.

“Nike is committed to investing in communities where we have a significant business presence,” said Elliot Hill, Nike Vice President of USA Commerce.

“As an Oregon company with deep roots in Northeast Portland, we recognize the positive impact business can have on the economic development of a neighborhood and are proud of our now 21-year promise to give back to the organizations that support the continued prosperity of this community.”

Susan Castillo, Oregon State Superintendent of Public Instruction, joined in the festivities as more than 1,000 community residents, business members, and youth attended the open house and Community Expo immediately following the award ceremony.

The open house included a free outdoor picnic, games and activities for youth, and entertainment by Ethos musicians and the High Steppers Drill and Dance Team. The Community Expo featured booths with representatives from more than 40 organizations in North and Northeast Portland.
