TeamWorks offers volunteers the opportunity to make a slightly longer-term commitment to volunteering, delve into a topic or issue-area, and get to know other volunteers in the process.
This unique “sampler” team will focus its attention on the NE Portland region to better understand this part of our city through the eyes of the nonprofits that serve its communities. We’ll sort food for hungry families at the Oregon Food Bank, plant trees with Friends of Trees, promote literacy by mending books at the Children’s Book Bank, help weatherize homes with the Community Engergy project, and engage in a discussion of the history of Northeast Portland over dinner!
Whether you live in Northeast Portland and want to delve into your neighborhood, or live in another area and hope to learn more about the NE quadrant, please join us! It’s a great mix of projects and should be a lot of fun.
What is TeamWorks? TeamWorks teams consist of approximately 10-15 individuals, led by a Hands On trained volunteer leader, who commit to volunteering for every project in the series, so please carefully check the schedule below before signing up! Signing up for the FIRST session will sign you up for the entire TeamWorks. If you know in advance you’d have to miss one of the projects, let us know and you might still be eligible to join the team. Questions can be directed to Melia Tichenor, firstname.lastname@example.org or 503.200.3370.
