As the effects of the pandemic are prolonged, social issues are exacerbated and volunteerism is needed more than ever. We encourage Jewish community members to volunteer, connect and make a difference in the greater Portland community to do our part in perfecting the world and bringing about an easing of the suffering of many in our midst.
To connect people with more and different ways to help, the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland has assembled a list (by no means exhaustive) of organizations in greater Portland that will benefit from your good deeds. In fact, we’ve partnered with many of these organizations during our Good Deeds Days of service in the past.
On the volunteer webpage, we’ve grouped organizations around a monthly theme, but all will welcome your efforts any time. The August theme is Homelessness.
In August, volunteers are encouraged to connect with Cascadia Clusters (cascadiaclusters.org), Community Warehouse (communitywarehouse.org), Impact NW (impactnw.org) and Transition Projects (tprojects.org).
