Connecting for Good Tour – Portland Stop!

cfgRotary’s Connecting for Good Tour is a 14 city goodwill road trip starting October 29, 2016 in Honolulu and ending November 11, 2016 in Santa Barbara! With each stop, the tour acts as a catalyst to unite local Rotarians around a common service project benefiting our community.
The tour’s team will be hitting the road driving a Rotary RV, and their third stop will be in Portland on November 1st. That evening, from 6:00 – 8:30, a group of Rotary Club members, local Rotaractors and members of the Global Shapers Portland Hub will volunteer together at the Oregon Food Bank. This respected non-profit works with a statewide network of partner agencies to distribute emergency food to hungry families.
We’ll get down to business repacking and labeling bulk dry food in a lively, active environment! We’ll be repacking foods like rice, pasta, apples or potatoes into family-sized packages, either working at tables or around bins. (You must wear closed-toe shoes for this project.)
Afterwards, the Portland crew will head 4 minutes down the road to an after party at the Kennedy School, 5736 NE 33rd. We’ll meet in the Courtyard Restaurant for food and bevs.
