The 5th annual Brews for New Avenues fundraising event was on August 26th.  They featured a live and silent auction for the rarest bears in this region and the most popular beers on tap for participants to enjoy. In 2015, they had over 700 attendees and raised $58,000! This year, tickets sold out and raised $150,000!

Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity at Helensview

Ready to get to work!
Ready to get to work!

Volunteering in our local community is important to TMT, and Habitat for Humanity Portland/Metro East is an amazing organization that we always enjoy working with. For 35 years they have provided stability and housing to hard-working, low-income families who need it the most. Last Friday the TMT team put on our hard hats, braved the heat, and headed out to work on homes at Helensview, a new Habitat development in the Cully neighborhood of NE Portland. Once completed, Helensview will house 21 hard-working, local families and approximately 60 children. We had a great day painting, digging, and bonding with other volunteers in our community.

Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity

TMT is committed to being active in our local community and one of the organizations we support annually is  Habitat for Humanity. The TMT team helped by putting the finishing touches on a few homes at Trillium Court in Southwest Portland. It was great opportunity to get out of the office, strap on our tool belts, and work with other community members to build homes for some deserving families.

TMT gives gifts this holiday season – Adopt-a-Family

TMT was excited to participate in the Adopt-A-Family program again this holiday season. Through generous donations from our employees, we were able to provide holiday gifts for a young mother and her three children. Giving back to the community is at the heart of what we do here at TMT, and we were honored to help bring joy to this family during the holidays!

Orchards Community Garden Update 5_TMT Development_Portland_Oregon

Orchards Elementary School Garden – UPDATE

TMT Development recently donated vacant land across from Orchards Elementary School to build a sustainable community garden. TMT employees and Orchards Elementary students, teachers, parents, local businesses and staff spent a day building the school garden back in May, and a lot of progress has been made since then! The garden has been planted and will be ready for the upcoming school year. To decorate the space, students created colorful artwork.  All of this hard work ensures that the garden will foster a healthier, safer and stronger community for years to come with fresh produce and a learning garden for students!
