GPH recently submitted a video to be chosen to attend Benchmark Real Estate’s Four A Cause annual holiday party and charity event. At our non-profit we believe everyone deserves accessible, affordable, and culturally sensitive health care regardless of their ability to pay. . If selected we, along with three other Portland non-profits, would receive a professional informational video, a custom full color banner, a table at the Four A Cause 2019 event, and marketing support – all of which would help us share our mission and continue to provide care to those in need. . Click the link in the bio to vote (up to once a day until noon on 9/30) for us as well as listen to our CEO Ann Tucker explain more about the services we provide the Greater Portland Community. We’d appreciate your support!
