We are now accepting applications for our Spring 2018 training classes. We will be accepting applications through November 30th, 2017 and will notify applicants of their status by January 15th, 2018.
Please note that our processing/arranging sessions take place on Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays before noon and are held in a converted greenhouse where volunteers stand on cement floors for the entire session (approx. 2.5 hours). In order to qualify for training, you must have availability to regularly volunteer on either Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays before noon and be physically capable of standing for 2.5 hours. In addition, because of the extensive training required (approx. 20 hours), we ask that volunteers be committed to volunteering a minimum of 3-4 times a month for at least a year. All training classes & weekly work sessions take place at our workspace located at 160 SW Miller Road, Portland OR 97225.
If you meet all of these requirements, please send an email with the subject line “Interested in Processing/Arranging Training Class” with your name, phone number and preferred email contact address to: email@example.com. A more detailed application/survey will then be sent to you via email.
We occasionally need volunteer drivers with large-capacity vehicles (large SUV, pickup truck, panel van) to fill in/substitute on larger pick-ups from wholesale partners at locations including Swan Island, Aurora, and Wilsonville and deliver them to our SW Portland workspace. Also, we occasionally need volunteer drivers with large-capacity vehicles (large SUV, pickup truck, panel van) to fill in/substitute on large-scale deliveries to various partners. Most of these pick-ups/deliveries take place Monday-Friday before 3pm.
If you are interested in training as an occasional fill-in/substitute driver and have a large-capacity vehicle please send an email with the subject line “Interested in Fill-In Volunteer Driving” with your name, phone number and preferred email contact address to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure to include your general availability each week as well as the type of vehicle you have. Our one-hour training class for fill-in/substitute drivers is generally offered every 8-12 weeks depending on need/interest.
