Over 40 unions and 200 volunteers were involved in this year’s Presents from Partners holiday party for families in need. The event was held Dec. 16 at the Sheet Metal Workers Hall in Northeast Portland. Some 350 kids and 200 parents from labor and the community at large enjoyed the day, which featured a hot meal, a visit with Santa Claus, gifts, groceries, and more. Photos on this page share just a glimpse of what the families experienced. Presents from Partners is coordinated by Labor’s Community Service Agency.
