Northwest Portland Ministries needs a volunteer to work with us to pick-up several boxes of bread each Friday morning from a downtown location. This is food that would otherwise be thrown away.
We'd like to collaborate to divert it. We have some places for it to go, but are happy
to share it or split it with other efforts or projects, as desired.
The effort takes about an hour. We need someone who is reliable,
and either has a good sized vehicle, or who is willing to do the paperwork to
be approved to drive a vehicle we provide.
Contact Kelly@nwpm.org or 503-413-5530 to learn more about
this or other volunteer opportunities (see list below) in NW & downtown Pdx.
