Thank you for your support of Kitchen Share over the many months that we have been working toward opening our doors to the community. It would not be happening without an encouraging show of interest and support from neighbors throughout Southeast Portland.
We are pleased to announce that we'll be opening our doors on August 21st from 5:00 to 8:00pm,
and every Tuesday during those hours. On the 21st we'll be celebrating on the front lawn with food, live music, kitchen tool demonstrations and fresh ice cream! You are invited to bring a snack to share and celebrate or simply sneak a peek at the library. Residents of Southeast Portland will be able to sign up as members and check out their first items so start planning your projects!
We'll be located at St. David of Wales at 2800 SE Harrison--conveniently between Hawthorne and Division and sharing a building with the Southeast Portland Tool Library. Open hours will be Tuesdays from 5:00 to 8:00pm. There is a one-time membership donation of $10 - $30, sliding scale, but no one is turned away for lack of funds. Members will have unlimited access to free one-week loans of all of Kitchen Share's tools. Membership details and a complete list of our tools will be on our website very soon.
Calling all volunteers for our grand opening celebration!
If you can help with any of the following, please contact Robin
Hang up fliers in your neighborhood and Facebook or blog about the event.
Set up and clean up at the event.
Bring snack food or non-alcoholic beverages to share, or ice cream ingredients.
Pick up food donations from local businesses before the event.
Paint our plywood sign.
Manage the ice cream making project during the event.
Run the library check-out system for one hour during the event. (We'll have a training a couple days prior. You'll be teaming up with another volunteer.)
We also could use a hand in the next couple weeks with data entry and writing to put together the logistical pieces. And after the opening, we'll need volunteers every Tuesday evening, so please contact Robin
if you're interested.
Thank you and enjoy each summer day!
