Season of Giving
The Trail Blazers participate in the NBA Cares Season of Giving each December. Whether hosting holiday parties for children and families who might not have a reason to celebrate, adopting classrooms and providing gifts for those who might not otherwise receive one, or bringing a little cheer to a children?s hospital, the Trail Blazers team, staff and alumni can be found across the Portland Metropolitan area working with a variety of organizations throughout the month of December to make it better during the holiday season.
Black History Month
The Portland Trail Blazers spend the month of February celebrating Black History Month in partnership with local non-profits. As part of the month-long celebration, the Trail Blazers honor extraordinary African-American leaders and community members at home games.
Black History Month is a time for Americans to bear witness to the progress, richness and diversity of African-American achievement. Its origins trace back to 1926, when Dr. Carter G. Woodson, the second black to ever receive a Ph.D from Harvard University, inaugurated Negro History Week. The program evolved into Black History Month in 1976.
MODA HEALTH & TRAIL BLAZERS MAKE COMMUNITY ASSIST

We’ve teamed up with Moda Health to create the “Give & Go” assist program to help support healthy, active living for kids. For every assist made on the court during the season, we will donate $5 to the make it better foundation to benefit this cause. Best of all, Moda Health has generously offered to match the total funds raised.
