Join us in honoring the legacy of Dr. King through meaningful service to our community: "Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve."

-- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Let's Spruce up the Hillside Manor's community garden!

Hillside Manor is a public housing high rise that houses primarily seniors and adults with disabilities.  We need your help to rebark the pathways and to add compost and mulch to the communal blueberry patch. 

Please wear closed-toe shoes and clothing that you don't mind getting dirty - we'll be working rain or shine! So dress for the weather and bring rain gear, if needed. If you are are able to bring additional shovels and wheelbarrows that would be very helpful!

Project Requirements:

  • Volunteers of ALL ages are welcomed to attend this project; any volunteer under age 12 must attend with a parent or adult chaperone.

    All volunteers under 18 are required to bring a Youth Volunteer Release Form signed by their parent or legal guardian. Please download, complete, and bring this waiver with you on the day of the project.

  • If you plan to bring children/additional volunteers you MUST reserve slots for them. The best way to do this is to create a Volunteer Team, then sign up your team for this project. Questions? Email teams@handsonportland.org 

    IMPORTANT NOTE: You are responsible for ensuring that everyone signed up through your team attends - only sign up team members who have confirmed their availability. Teams that repeatedly sign up, but do not show up or show up with fewer volunteers than they signed up, may be removed. To add or remove team members from a project: log in to your volunteer account and click "Manage My Team" next to the appropriate upcoming opportunity.
