About PDXLAN Charity

PDXLAN incorporates a charity component into each event it does. Together, attendees as a community aim to reach $30,000 in donations to chosen local charities. Attendees will be able to give to the chosen charity on this page. Attendees will also be able direct their family and friends give to this charity to help raise funds.

Our charity selection process selects only official charities (501 c3) that get the dollars you donate to the programs that need it most.

This November 2021 PDXLAN attendees will be raising money for “Because People Matter~Night Strike” – a great charity based locally.

The more each attendee raises, the more chances they’ll have to win in the PDXLAN charity raffle at the end of the event. Every $10 donated will get ( 1 ) charity raffle ticket.  Attendees are encouraged to get their family, friends, neighbors, and workplaces involved for this fall’s charity drive. Our community alone can’t raise this much – but by encouraging our community to work at their own micro-drives with the people they know,  we can accomplish something great!

Have fun. Frag hard. Give back.

About this event’s chosen charity:

Night Strike is an urban humanitarian relief outreach program, drawing over 175 volunteers every Thursday night (47 weeks on the year) underneath the Burnside Bridge along Naito Parkway in Portland. The nonprofit that runs the program (Because People Matter) has faithfully done so in the same location for over 17 years; serving a meal for 300 people each week, offering clothing, sleeping bags, haircuts, personal hygiene toiletries, resource referral, medical and dental services, and most importantly, warmth and compassion.

Over the years, several local schools, community groups, and corporations have partnered with BPM to have impact in thier community; from restaurants that donate their food service; to retailers that donate clothing; to service providers.

Night Strike is putting hope within reach, because people matter!
