“We’re so excited to be back on the Square for our annual Volunteer Expo,” said Dan McMillan, president and chief executive officer at The Standard. “Last year was our first year back at the Square and it was a great success, connecting Oregonians with new volunteer opportunities during a time when our community needed it more than ever. And our nonprofit partners still need you, so please join us downtown on Sept. 7.”
