Sunnyside Neighborhood Community Cares (SNACC) Committee Updates

The Sunnyside Shower Project needs volunteers! Consider contributing to your community and getting to know your housed and unhoused neighbors by attending one of our New Volunteer Orientations in August. In the session, current volunteers will give you a tour of the Sunnyside Community Center where the Sunnyside Shower Project is located. You will get an overview of the tasks required of volunteers during their two hour shifts, as well as an introduction to basic concepts of de-escalation, conflict management, and non-violent communication which are necessary skills for volunteers. The hour will end with a Q&A session as well as time to sign up for your first shower shift. 

We will meet outside at the Sunnyside Environmental School park, located on the corner of SE 35th and Yamhill at the following dates and times:

• Thursday, August 18th, 7 – 8 p.m. (following the SNA Board Meeting from 6 – 6:30 p.m. and a brief SNACC Committee Meeting from 6:30 – 7 p.m.)

• Saturday, August 20th, 1 – 2 p.m.

RSVP by emailing Emily McCadden at [email protected]. If you are unable to attend but would like more information about volunteer opportunities with the Sunnyside Shower Project, contact Hannah Wallace at hannahm[email protected].
