Dear Greendrinks community,

 

Our mission has been and continues to be creating a more environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable community by supporting local organizations, businesses, and green initiatives. Even as things change drastically around us, we stand firmly behind this mission. 

 

As the Greendrinks board, our favorite moments are those spent with our community: meeting with attendees and friends, connecting with non-profit leaders, sharing a great local brew with like-minded folks. In the last few months, we’ve pivoted from large in-person networking and gathering events to online, virtual-based event programming. While these virtual events have been amazing, we feel these events lack the essence of what makes Greendrinks Portland special. 

 

So that we can continue to be a sustainable organization in the future, we have come to the decision to go into hibernation for the next six months. We will abstain from holding events starting this month, September 2020, hoping to resume some version of event-based networking come April 2021. We will continue to meet as a board to plan for the next phase of Greendrinks Portland. 

 

Fear not, dedicated Greendrinkers we are not going away forever, we promise to come back stronger than ever!
