love portland

In partnership with our friends over at Imago Dei, we're invited to help love our city of Portland really well by coming together to clean up and beauty our local schools. According to Portland's city leadership, one of our city's greatest needs is the cleanup of underfunded schools so that they are ready to welcome students for the new year.  

Current Need: 

  • On August 18th, we need lots of volunteers to help cleanup at Kelly Elementary, Alder Elementary, and Harrison Park Elementary.

To sign up to serve, contact Alina Alcheyeva using the "contact" button below. To find out more information about Love PDX, click "learn more" below.

the media foundation 

The Media Foundation provides funding to the local nonprofit community by converting in-kind media donations (CDs, DVDs, books, video games, software, etc.) into operating capital through the use of a free mobile app. These donations are processed by volunteers and staff and sold online through websites such as Amazon, eBay, Alibris, Half.com, and others. Profits from these sales go directly to their nonprofit partners like Safe Families For Children, Transitional Youth, Periokos, Love Inc. Tigard, etc. 

Current Need: 

  • Volunteers to help with cataloging, cleaning, sorting, prioritizing, and filing the book, CD, DVD, video game, and software donations received.
