    Portland Metropolitan Area

    Get out and volunteer with for the 13th year of

    MLK Weekend of Service!

    Starting this Friday, January 17th and running through the end of Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 20th, our Board Chair Kaleema Murphy will be volunteering at various projects in the greater Portland area. We invite you to join and come say hi!

    This is the 13th year United Way of the Columbia Willamette's volunteer program Hands On Greater Portland has put on this annual event, and while, historically, we have reserved spots for members of our community, we realized it was difficult to know whether or not the spots we held were being filled, and if we were doing more harm than the good intended by holding those spots.

    This year, in an effort to promote engagement for our entire community, we are inviting you to register for a project of your choice below:
