Communications Committee members needed!

Woodlawn PTA

DESCRIPTION OF OPP:

The Woodlawn PTA needs help spreading the word and building community at Woodlawn!  We have an ongoing need for help and input into a variety of Communications tasks:

Documenting life at Woodlawn through photos, research, blog posts and/or posts to our Woodlawn Facebook page. Volunteers needed: the more the merrier!

Compiling a weekly list of PTA announcements to go in the Wednesday Newsletter. Volunteers needed: 1-2 

Working on the PTA website (If you’re reading this, you’re on the site:)). If you already have website experience, great! If not, we’re happy to train anyone interested in learning. This is a great skill to have, and the more folks who know how to use the website, the better! Volunteers needed: 2-4

Working on the Family Directory. The online directory is hosted on this site, but has separate tasks associated with it. No web experience necessary, but you’ll need a willingness to learn how to enter data into the back end of the site. Volunteers needed: 1-3

If you are interested in hearing more about any of these opportunities, contact Rachel Wiecking, the current Communications Chair. Let me know which Communications tasks interest you the most, and I’ll get back to you! If you leave your phone number, I will call or text you (just let me know what you prefer). This is just a request for more information, not a commitment! 🙂

Woodlawn PTA and the Woodlawn Neighborhood Association are hosting a Woodlawn Cleanup Event on Sunday, June 5, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This event is for all ages.  This event will offer people in underserved nearby NE Portland neighborhoods, including Bridgeton, Concordia, King, Piedmont, and Vernon as well as Woodlawn the opportunity to bring trash, donation items, and recyclables to a central drop-off location. We will attempt to recycle and re-use as much as possible. For example, we will have a “free” giveaway pile for items that folks may want to repair, creatively re-purpose, etc.
