Logical Position donates school supplies
Just because kids have already gone back to school doesn't mean they all have the supplies they need. So Lake Oswego-based digital marketing firm Logical Position spent the whole summer preparing for that need by hosting a school supply drive for employees and community members.
The employees then stopped by the Blazers Boys & Girls Club earlier this month to deliver a wagon filled with roughly 100 pounds of school supplies — items like markers, rulers, paper, binders, backpacks and more.
"We were drawn to the Boys & Girls Clubs not only because they help vulnerable children in our community, but they also have centers where we have offices," says Adam Schwartz, Logical Position's Culture Operations Specialist. "So we were able to emulate this campaign in Las Vegas, Chicago, Austin, Charlotte and Denver — as well as in our Portland home base."
