Community Service Events

In addition to our Community Duty volunteer program at Village Home, we facilitate opportunities to serve our greater community. We know that giving back feels good, teaches us about the world and others, and strengthens our Village Home connection to make a difference in the world together. Village Home provides family-friendly community service opportunities for our learners and their families in the greater Portland/Metro area through our partnerships with Oregon Food Bank, SOLVEOregon,  Faith Cafe hot meals for those hungry for food and community,  and Northwest Children’s Outreach. We also encourage Village Home families to let us know about more opportunities for service!

ONGOING OPPORTUNITIES:

Bethel Food Pantry:
Restock the shelves between times that the pantry is open. We need help on Mondays from 12:45 – 1:30 or Thursdays from 12:00 – 12:30. There is a bit of training involved. Please contact the Service Learning Coordinator, Mike (mserpa(at)gmail(dot)com),  if you or your kids are interested in helping out with this. 
Faith Cafe – Food for the Hungry:
Faith Café serves meals at Bethel Church every Sunday afternoon and the last Thursday evening of the month.  Village Home will be coordinating a time for a team of volunteers in the Summer 2019.  If you want to join the group, contact Mike at mserpa(at)gmail(dot)com. Please note, there is a minimum age requirement of 10 -12 years with adult/chaperone, over age 12 welcome without a parent. Volunteer jobs include setting up, serving, and cleaning up.

Thank you for your service to the community! Village Home is great because we have families who are willing to invest their time and talent in the community.
