Monday, April 24th (9:30-1pm) is Winterhaven's next assigned volunteer date at the at Marshall High School: .
This is always a really rewarding experience - for many PPS students, this is their only chance to get new clothes for the season.
As a volunteer you can help families "shop" for clothes or sort incoming donations--whichever you want.
If you have the flexibility in your schedule, please consider volunteering. If you cannot commit to the full 3.5 hours, think about splitting a 1.75 hour slot with a friend!
Email Rebekah Folsom (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up for a slot or half-slot (9:30-1p, 9:30-11:15, or 11:15-1p).
Immigrant and Refugee Donation Drive - March 3 to March 23 - As you may know, every quarter of the school year we have parent and teacher run interest classes that meet once a week on Fridays. This quarter, as part of our Community Awareness elective run by Winterhaven parents, we are organizing a donation drive. This drive is collecting donations for the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO) who serves the holistic needs of immigrants, refugees, and mainstream community members. We as students believe that it is crucial for our community to help and provide support for immigrant and refugee families. We believe that everyone has the right and obligation to take part in their community and its actions, including kids. As 6, 7, and 8 graders, we are trying to take action and help families who may not be as lucky and well off as we are. So, if you have the time and ability to donate these necessities to families in need we ask you to do so and join us in our search for equality. If you have any questions, please email our teachers and fellow Winterhaven parents Kristin Doherty or Beth Nelson at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
Please leave donations in the front entry way of the school
Donations we recommend may include:
All donations will go to IRCO, (Immigrant & Refugee Community Organization) https://www.irco.org/who-we-are/

Hey, Winterhaven Families -
We have so many opportunities this year for you to share some of your abundance with the community at large!
Here is a list of some of the opportunities:
There are only two days left in our Willamette Center drive.
Amy Lacks (email@example.com) is picking up all of the items on Friday, December 2nd, 2016 and bringing them over to the shelter.
There is still time to bring in a donation!
Here is a reminder of the items needed:
We Need Your Help to Fight Hunger!
Please join the Winterhaven Community for a FALL FOOD DRIVE. Items can be dropped off in the front lobby in large green bags from Friday, December 2nd through Tuesday, December 13th.
This drive goes to the Portland Food Project (http://www.portlandfoodproject.org/), who provides reusable, green donation bags to members of the community, creating a network of long-term food donors that help supply food to local pantries in the Portland area.
Please bring in any non-perishable food items to donate, and help fill as many green bags for them as we can!
Questions? Email Shelley Fluter Norris (Winterhaven Community Service Committee) at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Mary Notti (Portland Food Project) at email@example.com.
Winterhaven's first volunteer date at the PPS PTSA Clothing Closet is Thursday, September 22nd from 9:30 - 1:00 pm. If you are able to help on this day, it is always much appreciated.
We are required to provide 5-6 parents, and this is always a really rewarding experience - for many kids, this is their only chance to get new clothes for the school year. There is such a great need and as a volunteer you can help families "shop" for clothes or sort through donations which ever you are most comfortable with.
I realize that weekday mornings are tough for some but if you have any flexibility in your schedule please consider doing this. If you cannot commit to an entire shift you can also share it with someone else.
**Please do not reply to this email but email Rebekah (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kristin (email@example.com) if you can help. Again we need 5-6 volunteers Thursday, September 22nd from 9:30-1:00.
The Clothing Closet is located at Marshall High School at 3905 SE 91st Ave, Portland, OR 97266.
