Columbia CEO Donates $1.5 mil to Homeless Shelter

It's not often I'm "touched" by a headline. Oregon Live posted this story about Columbia Sportswear CEO Tim Boyle donating $1.5 million to build a homeless shelter in downtown Portland on city-owned land under the Broadway Bridge. 

Picture from is an artist rendering of the “navigation center,” intended to offer the homeless a place to sleep, eat, bathe and do laundry plus connections to health care and social services.

We're all affected by the homeless crisis and to see a local company give so big is beyond inspiring. BRAVO COLUMBIA
