ORGANIZATION: Community for Positive Aging / Hollywood Senior Center

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

At the Community for Positive Aging, we support seniors and older adults by delivering food, fans, and medical equipment. Through our Neighborhood Gleaners program we collect the unpurchased produce and pre-made food from the Hollywood Farmers Market to distribute to older adults facing food insecurity. Join us in this vital work and help deliver food to seniors. The program operates on Saturdays May through mid-November. Volunteer drivers serve Saturdays from 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm.

Become a volunteer with the Community for Positive Aging as a driver and only volunteer when it works for your schedule. We value your support and involvement.

About Community for Positive Aging / Hollywood Senior Center

Location:

1820 NE 40th Ave, Portland, OR 97212, US

Mission Statement

Community for Positive Aging is a caring and healthy organization that encourages intergenerational relationships, recognizes the wisdom and experience of its elders, and demonstrates awareness and respect for the aging process. Seniors have access to a full spectrum of services, including social, emotional, educational, and recreational opportunities appropriate to their unique needs and interests. We value, appreciate and encourage the important contributions of older adults in our community and empower people of all ages to achieve happy, healthy aging.

Description

CFPA was founded as Hollywood Senior Center in 1973, a nonprofit committed to creating an uplifting and vibrant environment for adults 55 and older while providing a channel for intergenerational relationships and learning. In July 2021, HSC expanded by absorbing The Giving Tree, another not-for-profit organization, committed to providing residential services to people living in affordable housing, including access to culturally-specific food, throughout Portland; merger of these two organizations form CFPA.
