First Book Wants You!

We are looking for passionate, entrepreneurial people who want to make a difference in their community. Help us get books to kids who need them most.

Our all-volunteer team draws it members from area nonprofits, agencies, businesses, and the community. We meet in-person one evening a month and use Google Groups to collaborate on fundraising activities and to review applications for book grants.

Each of us typically focuses on one or two areas including event planning, communications and publicity, engaging with our book recipients, and seeking funding or in-kind donations from local organizations. Our largest annual event is Wine-ing for Literacy, a wine tasting and silent auction.

Do you have an area of expertise to share? A skill set you would like to develop? A sizable network of friends or colleagues in the tri-county area? Time to fill following your retirement? Unbridled enthusiasm about children’s literacy? Whatever you have to offer, we want to hear from you!

If you are interested in volunteering with First Book Portland, please use our contact form or email firstbookportland@gmail.com. We will provide you with an application.
