Cook It Up at GNC (age 14+) *Hands On*

Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

Join us in the kitchen as we prepare and serve up Sunday dinner for the residents of the Good Neighbor Center - a homeless shelter in Tigard for families.

Volunteers will use the on-site food pantry to prepare a meal that will serve all of the residents and the volunteer group.  You're welcome to bring extra items/ingredients to add to the meal if you'd like. No volunteer is required to bring any food items, but if you would like to make a food donation the Good Neighbor Center strongly recommends dairy products, such as milk, cheese, or eggs.

The shelter has 9 bedrooms to serve up to 9 families, with a total capacity of 36. Each family has a private room where they can keep their belongings and sleep. The Good Neighbor Center is dedicated to providing safe emergency housing and supportive services to empower individuals and families to be self-sufficient.
