Portland Community College | Portland, Oregon

Participating in service is a great way to build community, camaraderie, and esteem. Many leadership programs incorporate service because of the experience and humility that service provides the team dynamic. In addition to benefiting your club and those you are doing service for, community service looks great on a resume and in promotional materials for your club!

Upcoming Service Projects-MLK Day of Service, Monday Jan 18th

Service projects can be a means for contributing to existing PCC events. The following events will need help from Clubs for Winter Term.

Canned Food Drive:

On Monday January 18th from 9am-3pm, participants will gather at one of the five local grocery stores to ask for food donations. The food collected will be donated to the PCC Rock Creek food canteen located in the Women's ​Resource Center​, BLDG 7, 119. For more information on how to participate, please contact the ClubHouse, clubs.rc@pcc.edu

Children's Book Bank:

Please consider joining the Latino & Hope Partnership Leadership Group and the Rock Creek Multicultural Center in gathering culturally diverse and relevant children’s books for the Children’s Book Bank. Our goal is to collect 150 books for children ages 5-13 in Multnomah County. A group of 30 PCC students and staff who helped with the book drive will visit the MacLaren Youth Facility in Woodburn, OR and deliver our collected donations. The day will consist of a ceremony highlighting the book donations, activities focusing on the empowerment of incarcerated youth and a BBQ with leaders from MacLaren. Please contact Eder Mondragón Quiroz at eder.mondragon@pcc.edu to reserve your spot for this day of service and to also receive additional details regarding this service opportunity."
