Seeking Volunteers - Locking/Unlocking the ADA Portable Toilet at Arbor Lodge Park

Have you used the ADA portable toilet at Arbor Lodge Park? While the park restrooms are locked for the winter (the building is not winterized), the Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Association provides this for the neighborhood.⁣

If you believe that having this portable toilet is important, we would love your help. Portland Parks and Recreation (PP&R) would like it to be locked up each night and we need volunteers to help with that. The door needs to be unlocked every morning by about 9am and then locked at about sunset every evening. It is a simple combination lock, so no key is required. Once you know the code, you can easily help us lock or unlock it!⁣

Our December volunteers have done this for about 30 days. Can you step in to help for a week, 2 weeks or for a month? If so, please let us know and we'll share the lock combination with you.⁣

Thank you for considering! Everyone in the neighborhood will thank you too!

- SEEKING VOLUNTEERS -

The park restrooms at Arbor Lodge Park are locked from November 15 - March 15 because the buildings do not have winterized plumbing. The neighborhood association provides the ADA portable toilet for neighbors during this time.

We are seeking neighborhood volunteers to unlock the ADA portable toilet in the morning and lock it at night. It needs to be unlocked at about 9am every morning and then locked around sunset.

It is a combo lock so there is no need for a key.

Please let us know if you would be interested in volunteering to help by emailing: outreach@arborlodgeneighborhood.com

Thank you!

WooHoo!

We asked and you gave!  At this point the Chief Joseph School backpack program has $1,500 to buy gift cards and other needed shelf stable foods for their food pantry.  THANK YOU ARBOR LODGE.  You just proved again what a great, wonderful neighborhood we live in.   

If you haven't had your chance to donate, here is the link:

www.chiefjosephschool.org/pto/backpack

Funds donated help buy gift cards for food insecure kids over the winter school break, and to add to shelf stable foods to help these same kids through the school year with twice a month food delivery right to their homes.  

Thank you again everyone in Arbor Lodge!

A Christmas Carol - Now Available

 

Available today!

"A Christmas Carol" 
Performed by Gerald 'Charles' Dickens


Gerald Dickens, the great-great grandson of Charles Dickens, has been mesmerizing audiences for over 20 years with his live performance of the classic tale, A Christmas Carol. This unforgettable one-man show has recently been captured on film for all of his fans to enjoy this holiday season - streaming exclusively on Vimeo.

Gerald will take you on the magical journey of Ebenezer Scrooge’s heartfelt transformation by acting out all 26 characters in this favorite holiday tale. For just $20, you can rent this inspirational performance in the comfort of your home — sure to become a treasured Christmas tradition! 

This year Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Association is the local sponsor for the film which has been released today! 50% of the proceeds will go right back into our community through the work being done by our neighborhood association. 
  
Please follow this link to access the film.

Chief Joseph Elementary School Backpack Program

Hungry in Arbor Lodge - not you? 

But maybe a neighbor, or your neighbor and their children. 
 
Each year near the winter break, we ask Arbor Lodge neighbors to donate $5 gift cards to Chief Joseph Elementary to help those children who normally receive a weekly backpack of food from the school. Things are different this year. Food backpacks now go out every other week with enough for those 2 weeks. But there will be a break in backpacks going out between mid December and early January. 
 
How can you help?  
  • Food Donations
Please check out this inventory list for items needed. Hopefully this helps if you are thinking of picking up an extra item or two in your regular shopping routine. The Chief Joseph Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) sends home two weekends worth of food to thirty students on the 1st and 3rd weeks of the month. So while sometimes the inventory numbers look healthy, it really doesn't last that long! As always, these are suggestions and goals, and will adjust as needed and always send home plenty of food. If you have suggestions for items not listed here please contact: backpack@chiefjosephschool.org 

There will be two more bag distributions this calendar year (Friday 12/4 and 12/18). Donations can be brought to the table set up between the temporary building and the main school building, just outside the door of the temporary building. A volunteer will be there between 9:30-10:30am on those dates listed. Donations cannot be brought to the school library as their open hours have been put on pause. If those times don’t work please contact backpack@chiefjosephschool.org to make arrangements. 
 
  • Gift Cards
The PTO will be sending Fred Meyer gift cards home in December. Instead of asking people to donate gift cards, it will be easier in our current situation to accept financial donations and the PTO will handle ordering and distributing the cards! They are hoping to raise at least $25/student. Any amount can be donated through the chiefjosephschool.org site by clicking the "donate" button, please pull down to select "backpack program" and you can also add "gift card" in the notes section.
 
Please contact backpack@chiefjosephschool.org if you or someone you know prefers to donate in another way.
 
There are 30 children/families in this program. The hope is that we can give each $25 in gift cards to supplement the backpack going out on December 18th. That means we hope to raise $750 for gift cards. Please consider giving anything you can. Even if 75 of the approximate 3,000 households in Arbor Lodge gave $10 each, we would reach our goal. 

For more information please contact: backpack@chiefjosephschool.org

Thank you for helping your neighbors.
