Can You Imagine Needing Help Moving?

Would you be willing to spend a couple of hours helping someone move?
Over the last few months, NWPM Ministries volunteers have helped 5 different people move.

Activities like packing, unpacking, lifting, and finding a vehicle can be
a challenge for any of us, but it especially difficult for those with few resources & poor health.
For fragile older adults and people with disabilities, the prospect of
moving is daunting.

Currently we are looking for:

1) One volunteer who can help transport a new
recliner for an elderly lady in the downtown area. Friday July 18th
at 9:30 AM.

2) Two volunteers who can help a woman with a foot injury
move her items from her apartment to a smaller unit in the same building
(very near Couch Park in NW Portland) on Sat. 7/19 at 1 PM.

3) I'd like to start a list of people potentially interested & available, so
that when future opportunities to help move come up I'll have a "go-to" list
to start from.

Thank you so much for your consideration!
