Hashtag it! The Portland Unipiper did!

Portland Pedal Power has partnered with Point West Credit Union in support of raising funds and awareness for the Metropolitan Family Service’s “Ways to Work” program. To promote the awesome #DriveHope campaign, we will be out on the bikes at Sunday Parkways this weekend passing out some swag: free sunglasses and free blinky bike lights supplied by Point West.

The goal this summer is to help our community by sharing stories of what inspires or drives YOU. We want to hear what motivates you in your work life, personal life, and beyond. Share your stories or photos with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, with the hashtag #DriveHope and for every entry received, Point West will donate $5.00 (up to $2,500) to Metropolitan Family Service’s “Ways to Work” program. Plus, you’ll be entered to win a $250 VISA Gift Card!

For some parents, getting to work can be such a challenge, they run the risk of losing their jobs. Not to mention the added stress of getting kids to childcare and to school. The ability to access affordable loans to purchase, repair, or refinance a car can be a life-changing experience for working parents. As part of the national Ways to Work program, Metropolitan Family Service is getting parents on the road when they need it most.

The #DriveHope Campaign will run from July 1 to August 31, 2015. You can post your photos and stories to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram – just remember to use the hashtag #DriveHope to have your entry counted! The more platforms that you share your story on, the better your chances of winning. Be sure to encourage your friends and family to participate – we will also be giving away a $100 VISA Gift Card to a second lucky participant.
