Only have 5 minutes? Volunteer!

Don’t have a lot of time to help? That’s ok!

A hour here and there makes all of the difference in our community.

Here are a few ideas of ways to donate some of your time to the Ardenwald community. Just email ardenwaldpto@gmail.com to sign up or learn more! We’d love your help–and it’s fun!

Do you have five minutes?

  • Like our Facebook or Instagram page and share posts so your friends can see what’s happening at school
  • Reach out to other Ardenwald families to see how they’re doing and ask them if they want to join you helping out
  • Email the teachers with a cute story that your kid told you about them
  • Email the PTO or principal any suggestions, questions, concerns, compliments that you might have about Ardenwald

Do you have ten to fifteen minutes?

  • Trim your box top donations before you bring them to school
  • Visit our website: ardenwaldpto.com
  • Shelf books in the library after you drop your kid off at school

Do you have a half hour?

  • Go through your kid’s bookshelf and donate gently used books to a classroom
  • Contact a friend or relative who has a business in Portland and ask if they could donate something to our Spring Auction
  • Fill out your volunteer application
  • Register yourself on helpcounter.com so you sign up for volunteer shifts with ease

Do have an hour or so?

  • Help your student’s teacher. Ask them if they need any help with photocopies, making bulletin boards, classroom help, etc
  • Attend a PTO or school board meeting
  • Sign up for a shift to help out at one of our fundraisers or community events (Bingo Night, Winter Social, Plant Sale or the Spring Auction)

Do you have an evening?

  • Watch a movie and eat pizza while you help with Parent’s Night Out
