Cascade AIDS Project (CAP) is a local non-profit that supports, empowers, and advocates on behalf of people living with HIV/AIDS. Today, Nick was honored to accept the Community Hero Award on behalf of the City of Portland at CAP’s annual Heroes of HIV Luncheon.
The luncheon celebrates the people and organizations supporting people living with HIV/AIDS and fighting to end the stigma around the disease.
In 2016, the City invested in the PRISM Health Center, Oregon’s first specialized healthcare facility for the LGBTQ+ community.
Special congratulations to other honorees Kathleen Saadat and Edward Reeves.

Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy.
Nearly 20,000 small businesses call Portland home. They provide more than 270,000 jobs. And for every $1 spent at a local business, 70¢ stays in the community.
Today, Nick celebrated Little Boxes, Portland’s annual holiday shopping event, in the Williams Business District.
Little Boxes features over 200 participating local businesses and is a great way to do your holiday shopping while supporting the Portland economy, getting great discounts, and discovering new places to buy local.
