Giving Back

Annual Giving Campaign

Each year, Port of Oakland employees participate in United Way's Employee Giving Campaign. In 2001, employees supported hundreds of local organizations and agencies by giving more than $116,000. These much needed funds will serve such populations as homebound seniors, disabled children and adults, at-risk youth and the homeless.

The Port's commitment to caring for our communities is making a difference in many lives.

According to the United Way, this money will help provide:

  • Groceries for the homeless
  • Home care for aging seniors
  • Discount medication for kidney patients
  • Summer camp for children with sickle cell disease
  • Day care for mothers receiving job training
