Now Accepting Membership Applications!
Assistance League of Greater Portland is a group of dedicated member volunteers who donate time and expertise to support vital community service programs. Membership is open to those who wish to be of service to our community and have the time and passion to volunteer.
Our member volunteers are encouraged to participate fully in our philanthropic programs and in our fundraising activities. We attend regular meetings, share in the leadership of the organization, enjoy each other’s company and share a commitment to our community.
As a new member, you will be invited to Orientation meetings to help you get acquainted with other members and learn about our philanthropic programs.
Most members work one day a month in the Thrift Shop and in the Consignment Shop to help raise funds to support our programs. You and our schedulers will find a shift that works for you. Our various committees will welcome you. Choose among fundraising, budget-finance, building management, marketing and retail sales.
