350 volunteers still needed for Sunday Parkways

Sunday Parkways season is less than one month away (first event is in southeast May 21st)! But to make the fun happen, the City of Portland needs a lot of volunteers to help pull it off. Check their notice below to find ways to plug in and do your part. See you out there!

Portland Sunday Parkways needs your help again this year to open up our public streets, introduce folks young and old to the wonders of car-free afternoons, and show our neighbors how resilient, interconnected and caring communities can light up all of our lives. We need ~350 bike fun enthusiasts like you at each event to help more than 25,000 participants have the best ride ever— whether it’s their thousandth, tenth, or even their very first. Sign up to volunteer for another Shift (on wheels, feets, hands, chairs, wings– anything you like as long as it’s human-powered) at our first event of the year on May 21st in (Inner) Southeast Portland!
Sign up here to volunteer.

Here’s how we need your help…
-Mobile Superheroes to ride the route, keeping a watchful eye on the neighborhood and backing up the Intersection Superheroes
-Intersection Superheroes to monitor the barricades, making sure participants are safe from cars and neighbors are happy to host us
-Info Booth Ambassadors to help all our participants get the most out of Sunday Parkways
-Interested in helping another way? Come down to the office! We’re hosting two more fundraising nights this week to keep Sunday Parkways happy and healthy, join us! We need help in between events too— schedule some time to help out behind the scenes.

…and here’s (just a few of the ways) we can show our appreciation!
Every Sunday Parkways volunteer receives:
– a HEATHER PURPLE Sunday Parkways event t-shirt
– refreshments before and during your shift
– support before, during and after the event
– a 2017 Sunday Parkways bandanna – any three shifts across the season and it’s all yours

Thanks again folks! See you in Southeast Portland!
