Volunteer Opportunities

Loaves & Fishes Delivery Driver needed for Mondays at 10:45 a.m.
We need someone to pick-up coolers from the downtown Elm Court Loaves & Fishes Kitchen at 1023 SW Main and bring them to the Irving Street Loaves & Fishes. If you have a good sized vehicle that can fit several coolers and have the ability to lift full coolers or willingness to ask other volunteers for assistance you could help feed 40 seniors every Monday! Aside from food pick up you could also stay and help with lunch if you want to.

Wrap presents at the Holiday Village in NW Portland on Sat. 12/12.
Holiday Village is organized by the Nob Hill Business Association. This event will include music, refreshments, gift wrapping, Santa & much more. It is from 11am -5pm the first four Saturdays in December. Location: 635 NW 23rd (between Hoyt & Irving).

NWPM has been invited to have volunteers staff the gift wrapping station on Dec. 12th. A different non-profit is invited to participate each Saturday.

This is a fundraiser and community event for Northwest Portland Ministries and we need 3-4 people each shift to wrap gifts and have fun. All materials provided.

The time has been divided into two shifts and we are in need of 3 folks between 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you are good at wrapping and available please arrive 15 minutes before your shift. Call Kelly at 503-221-1224 ext. 105 or e-mail to sign-up.

Got a pick-up truck? Help Low income people get some furniture!
Many times someone gets into housing but has absolutely nothing, no bed, no chairs etc. Case managers we work with can help folks get items from places like the Community Warehouse, but often there is no way to transport these items to the recipient. This project can be scheduled at your convenience, please let us know if you have a van or truck and could be available for this type of service. Call Kelly at 503-221-1224 ext. 105 or e-mail to sign-up.

Friendly Helpers Needed for Local Residents
NWPM receives ongoing requests for Friendly Helpers to assist with various tasks. Help is needed with light cleaning, laundry, organizing, as well as social visits and simply providing companionship to an isolated neighbor in our community. To get involved call 503-221-1224 ext. 105 or e-mail

If you have a couple of hours to volunteer to make a difference, please contact:
