Neighbors Helping Neighbors | Seeking Volunteers


Call for volunteers! Help us to help others! 

Looking for an opportunity to provide practical help to unsheltered folks living outside in North Portland neighborhoods? Look no further! Neighbors Helping Neighbors PDX is seeking volunteers to help with special clean-up projects when the need arises. 

We provide a volunteer training, handy tools and safety equipment – all to ensure that you remain safe when collecting trash from houseless encampments. 

If you want to help folks living outside, sign up now! 

Email Patt Opdyke, Program Coordinator, at NeighborsHelp12@gmail.com to receive information about Neighbors Helping Neighbors PDX and our volunteer safety trainings.

Do you love Native Plants?  If so, on Thursday, October 21st from 1-5 you could learn more by volunteering with the Arbor Lodge Tree Team and Arbor Lodge Association.   We will be adding little labels to over 9,000 native plants at the parking lot behind Peace Lutheran Church, corner of Newcastle and Liberty.   This is in preparation for the Plant Pick Up set for Friday and Saturday, the 22nd and 23rd.

We have been amazingly successful in this partner sale.  Sparrowhawk Native Plants gives small non-profit groups - in this case our Arbor Lodge Tree Team - a percent of the sales from their pop up plant sales.  In turn, we will use the funds to buy fruit trees and blueberry bushes to give away at our Brian Duncan Memorial Fruit Tree Giveaway next March.   But, we need enough volunteers to be ready for the plant pick up days.  Your help could make a real difference.

Come join the silly fun, learn to recognize more native plants, and support your local community.

Here is the sign up link:

Thanks for considering this event.

 Have you heard of our Fresh Fruit Donation Network for Chief Joseph Elementary?

We are a group of neighbors who volunteer to donate (usually twice a school year) 30 individual pieces of fresh fruit (think apples, oranges, tangerines) to be added to the weekend backpack of shelf stable foods going out with food insecure kids attending Chief Joseph Elementary.  These kids are identified by their teachers and the school counselor.  They come to school on Monday mornings "hangry" and not as able to learn or get along with others due to being hungry.  The school sends a weekend worth of food home each weekend with these kids, we just add the fresh fruit.

If you'd like to join this Donation Network contact Ginger via arborlodgeginger@gmail.com

I'll need your email address, you'll be assigned a week in advance, you can change if that week doesn't work for you, and you'll get info on where and when to bring your donation.  If you work during the day, food can be delivered to my house in the evening, then I take it in the next day.

 Please join the Donation Network, you'll be helping neighbors right here in Arbor Lodge.

Thank you for considering.
