Week of Service

 

Get ready to join your fellow Rotarians in celebrating service above self during the Week of Service, every month during the last full week of the month. We’ve put together a variety of ideas, outstanding local businesses to support, nonprofits to give back to, and other easy ways for you to serve safely from home, or out and about in the community.
Post photos of you in service activities to our Facebook Group or tag us in your Instagram Posts @RotaryPDX.

 

Special April Opportunity:

Assemble Mobile Outdoor Classroom Kits with the Eco-School Network
 
To support outdoor learning during Earth month, the Eco-School Network is looking for volunteers to assemble mobile outdoor classroom kits to get students from 30 local Title 1 schools learning in nature.  On April 28, volunteers will unpack materials, cut yoga mats and used billboards to make sit-pads, and put kits together. You can work from 9-11 a.m. or from 12:30-2:30 p.m. Volunteer with your family or bring a friend, though volunteers must be at least 15 years old. Sign up here!

Tuesday - Be a Good Neighbor Day

  • Pick up Rubbish

    • Go for a walk on your own (or physically distanced with a friend) and pick up trash in your neighborhood, leaving the world behind you a little cleaner than you found it. 

  • Check in with neighbors 

    • Everyone’s dealing with a lot right now and sometimes a friendly face is all you need. Check in with your neighbors and see how they’re doing. (And maybe share our next option!)

  • Give the gift of homemade food

    • Who doesn’t love a surprise treat?! Spread joy today by offering a neighbor something you’ve baked or cooked. If you’re stuck for ideas, this is Mari’s favorite easy chocolate cake recipe
