And We Are Looking For Your Feedback!
Feast for Southeast!
Beginning a decade ago as a mere thought, Rob Selva, Founder and Director of Feast for Southeast, felt driven to find a way to “share [his] resources with those less fortunate.” Sitting in a friend’s living room seven weeks before Thanksgiving in 2010, he shared his dream with others. “I always thought this would be a better way to express gratitude than enjoying our own ‘feast.’ Whether that meant buying a turkey and giving it to someone, preparing a meal for a family in need, or volunteering at a local community event – I knew I wanted to make an impact!”
SE Portland Tool Library NEEDS MORE SPACE
And it needs your help!
The Southeast Portland Tool Library (SEPTL) is now over two and a half years old and has over 2000 members in inner SE Portland. The SEPTL it seems has now outgrown its space that 2 ½ years ago seemed sufficient. Growth is good as far as a tool library is concerned, but it now leaves us very cramped and needing a new space.
