Well we all survived Portland Snowpocalypse 2017. We are happy to report that we are open and ready to assit with all of your insurance needs - especially any weather-related claims. Here are a couple of pictures from the office taken by a few intrepid employees who faced the 10+ inches of snow to open the office and make sure those of us working from home could connect. Special thanks to Shelly Kidman and Julie Dunne for the photographs and help with IT matters.
EPBB was named (lucky) #13 on the Portland Business Journal's list of Top Corporate Philanthropists. Employees of EPBB spent over 675 hours volunteering for many local causes such as Portland Homeless Family Solutions, Feed the Hungry, Oregon Music Hall of Fame and Meals on Wheels. We also gave a combined total of $36,435 in cash donations and $19,083 in in-kind contributions to local charities in 2015. Way to give back team EPBB !!
