The Gorge is Our Home

It’s been said there’s no place like home – and we wholeheartedly agree. The Gorge is your home and ours, so we’re all-in when it comes to helping make our local community a world-class place to live and work. Our business growth has taken us from garage to global, and so has our approach to community engagement and corporate social responsibility. Through purposeful investments, thoughtful advocacy, volunteerism and outreach, Insitu and its employees support innovative partnerships and programs to help build better, more remarkable communities in the Columbia River Gorge.

Community Highlights

Giving Blood to Save Lives

In 2020, Insitu collected 264 units of blood, with the potential to save 792 lives! The pandemic can’t stop us from helping one of our favorite partners.

To find out how you can participate in the next Insitu blood drive, visit The Insitu Blood Drive Page. You will see a schedule of our upcoming events where you can donate a pint!

Delivering Holiday Happiness

Insitu employees are happy to play Secret Santa for our annual Tree of Joy gift-giving campaign. Each year, Insitu has given a little holiday happiness to more than 125 families and the elderly in Hood River, Klickitat and Skamania Counties – and in the future, we hope to help even more.

Making the Season Warmer

Winter arrives early in the Gorge and every year, Insitu employees and volunteers collect warm coats, boots, and gloves for local children and others in need.
