As Oregonians committed to service, we know that service unites people. It is a powerful way to bring Americans together from all walks of life to solve problems, achieve common goals, and to work toward common understanding. Volunteering can foster greater trust and cohesiveness, strengthen communities, and unite Americans across partisan, religious or socioeconomic divides. How will you and your family join in as we encourage all Oregon residents to find a way to reach out and show the power of uniting through service? Help us make 2017 the biggest year of service in Oregon! Pledge to Serve Oregon in 2017!
