Volunteer Opportunities

The Foster-Powell Neighborhood Association is an all-volunteer group, and we are always looking for more volunteers! Some examples of ways you can help:

National Night Out
We need volunteers to help put on the BIGGEST event of the year. Can you help distribute flyers? Pickup raffle prizes? Help with setup? Great! Contact us and we’ll get you connected with our organizers.

Firland Parkway Path Project
Funded by America Walks, this project will bring a walking path to the undeveloped right-of-way between the north- and south-bound lanes of SE 72nd Ave from SE Holgate Blvd to and SE Foster Blvd. For the latest information on the project, go to its Facebook page, or contact us if you’d like to volunteer.

Neighborhood Cleanup Crew
Do you have an interest in pitching in to help clean up your neighborhood? Tired of seeing trash floating around our streets? Then let’s do something about it together! See this post for more details.

2019 Holiday Events
We’re planning ahead for the next holiday season already! Do you love the holidays and want to share your passion for the season with your neighbors? Join us and help figure out what sort of event we want to host. Pictures with Santa? Tree lighting in the park? Caroling?

Update the Welcome to Foster-Powell Neighborhood Sign
We need a Project Champion to lead a make-over on the sign that welcomes everyone to our neighborhood (see it here and here). Would you like to help with the planning, fundraising, and/or creation of a new, wonderful sign? Join us and get involved!

Foster-Powell Community Garden
The garden is looking for regular volunteers to help with upkeep and maintenance. Contact Stacey at 62ndgarden@gmail.com

Other Existing Events
Do you like planning events? Do you enjoy the yearly Neighborhood Cleanup, Paint the Town Green! Graffiti and Litter Cleanup, Foster-Powell Garden Tour, National Night Out party, and others? These events are organized by your all-volunteer neighborhood association, and we can always use more helping hands!

Board member
Are you interested in a longer-term opportunity? Consider joining the board!

Let’s Talk!

Contact us to talk about any of these opportunities. You can also attend our monthly meetings on the second Monday of each month from 6:30-8:30p to see what we have going on!

  1. I am interested in being on the agenda to talk about the need for foster parents and other ways anyone interested can help even if they cannot be a foster parent. I work for the State of Oregon, born and raised here and have lived in FOPO for 20 years. Thank you. Carrie
