    • Venue: Prism Health (accessible, carpool available) 9am - 12pm: Cascade AIDS Project (CAP) is the oldest community-based provider of HIV services, housing, education and advocacy in Oregon and Southwest Washington. They’ll be holding their annual AIDS Walk on Saturday, September 8 and since each donor receives a thank you postcard afterwards, CAP could greatly use our help prepping and writing them out in advance.

They’re in need of extra hands to take on a variety of tasks around the office, including sorting cell phones, cleaning, and yard work.
    • Venue: Prosper Portland (accessible) 10am - 12pm: PDX Alliance for Self-Care (PDX ASC) is a grassroots organization led by a black woman and a diverse board of PoC, trans, genderfluid, and queer folx. Their mission is to connect marginalized and vulnerable communities with self-care resources, practitioners, education, and events. PDX ASC will soon be incorporating self-care kit-making into events and would love help putting together laminated bookmarks, resource materials, and skills cards for distribution.
