About the Project

One of the focuses of Positive Charge! PDX has been doing what we can to help address the hunger crisis in our community. One way we do this is by participating with other organizations in a rotating schedule to pick up day-old bakery items at the Safeway on Barbur and deliver them to Urban Gleaners on the Eastside (15 SE 6th; near the Burnside Bridge). Urban Gleaners redistributes 60,000 lbs. of food each month from restaurants, grocery stores, and bakeries to feed 4,000 people each week in school pantries, at summer farmers' markets, and through mobile pantries in low-income communities. They rock! Volunteers with Positive Charge! PDX amplify their kindness the first Saturday of each month. The commitment involves filling your car with baked goods that are waiting for you at Safeway, driving them across the river to Urban Gleaners, and transfering the baked goods from your car to carts at Urban Gleaners. It's a well-oiled volunteer opportunity and takes about one hour in total.

Although this is easily a one-person job, every volunteer opportunity is more fun with a buddy. So, why not invite someone to join you for this "do-something-good" Saturday morning!? Your partner? Your child? A friend? Your call! No matter whether you choose to do this alone or with someone, you're sure to get a "positive charge" from the experience!
