Nonprofit News

The Children's Book Bank is now OPEN to accept BOOK DONATIONS on MONDAY MORNINGS!

The Children's Book Bank is a new organization in Portland and is working to get more books into the hands and homes of young children who really need them.

Our book processing site, located at 1728 NE Glisan, PDX 97232, (one block North of Sandy Blvd.) will now be open every Monday morning from 9:00 AM - NOON to accept donations of new and used children's books.

Did you know that two-thirds of low income families own NO books for their children? Please help close this book equity gap by bringing the books your children have outgrown and are no longer reading to The Children's Book Bank. Our volunteers will ensure your books end up in the hands of children who might not otherwise have books of their own.

Trainings

A few spaces left for : Conflict and Workplace Relationships

TRAINING: Conflict and Workplace Relationships

Unresolved or ineffectively handled conflict can cause stress for individuals and may damage the organization as a whole. On the other hand, learning how to handle conflict better can enhance productivity and workplace harmony. If you are willing to explore conflict’s potential for growth and opportunity, join us for this fun and interactive workshop, where together we will:

- Explore individual and organizational responses to conflict

- Gain an awareness of strategies to respond rather than react to conflict

- Learn to explore the interests behind positions for more effective problem-solving

- Understand collaboration both as a process and an attitude

Volunteering at the Goose Hollow Family Shelter

The Goose Hollow Family Shelter is a homeless shelter for families with children. Each winter, we help about 60 families with children by providing emergency shelter and help about 60% of those families find permanent housing to transition into a self-sufficient life.

 

We are hosting our first annual silent auction benefit in October and we are looking for energetic volunteers to help us canvass the area to solicit donations to auction off at our auction. There is also a possibility to join the Fund Raising Committee of the Board of Directors if volunteers become specifically interested in helping the shelter fund raise.
