While we can't be together today, we are sending virtual hugs and high fives to each and every downtown worker. Whether you're an essential worker, working from home, furloughed, or somewhere in between, we appreciate you today and every day .

Today - Thursday, May 7, 2020 - was scheduled to be one of our favorite community celebrations: Downtown Worker Appreciation Day. This annual gathering, co-hosted by Portland Downtown and Portland Buy Local, brings hundreds of downtown employees together for a morning filled with smiles, local treats, and heartfelt thanks.

We look forward to celebrating with you in person when the time is right. Until then: stay healthy, stay strong, and be kind. We love you, Portland .
