Expanding the hours at Community Warehouse is great news – however they need our help to make this happen.
Community Warehouse is calling all Portland Metro and surrounding area residents to volunteer at their local furniture bank!
In an effort to bring all the comforts of home to more individuals and families in need, Community Warehouse, the region’s only furniture bank, rolled out new hours. Beginning March 1st, both Community Warehouse locations (Portland and Tualatin) are now open seven days per week. Jessica Thompson, Volunteer Manager, explains, “We’re a volunteer-driven organization. We are dependent upon volunteers in our community to serve as Warehouse Ambassadors and Cashiers. We have added no additional staff time with the new hours, so we really need the help of folks in our community to fill the extra day shifts with their donations of time and talent.
Opportunities include sorting and redistributing donated home goods to low-income folks in our community who are transitioning into stable housing. Volunteers also take shifts in our on-site Estate Stores, pricing and selling higher-end items that are non-essential for setting up a home. Additionally, volunteers help with special events and community outreach. We are the region’s only volunteer-driven, nonprofit furniture bank and we really need your help. Flexible week and weekend shifts available.
Community Warehouse partners with over 200 social service agencies, Portland Public Schools, and local hospitals to help at least 60 families receive furnishings each week. Together, we put used goods to good use every day.
