The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.

The first step to becoming a volunteer with us is to visit our web site to find out what we are all about. If after reviewing our website, you feel confident that SCRAP PDX aligns with your interests, passions, and schedule, you can then take the next step by applying. Your application will then be reviewed and, if accepted, we will contact you to set up an interview. This interview is intended for us to learn more about you and for you to learn more about what it means to be a SCRAP PDX volunteer. It will also help us both to decide if we are the right fit for each other's needs and expectations. If this is the case, we will then contact you to schedule your orientation and first two volunteer shifts during which we will tour the store, review our volunteer manual, make name tags, and learn stocking, and organizing, and how to make SCRAP volunteer-powered products.
