Marrow is currently entirely volunteer-run!
Here are 4 ways you can help:

1 - Lend a Hand.

If you want to support Marrow but can’t commit to taking on a larger project - fill out our volunteer interest form, and we’ll reach out to you when an opportunity comes up that fits your interests, skills, and availability!

If you're not sure yet how you'd be able to contribute - come to one of our monthly volunteer days and chat with us! Check our calendar page to see when the next one is!


2 - Provide a Meal.

For the 2018-2019 school year Marrow is trying out a new initiative where we ask the community to help us provide a 2x a month free lunch for youth. The intention is to give youth (particularly Roosevelt students) who may not have access to home-cooked, nourishing meals, an opportunity to have a dependable lunch alongside a community that cares about them. Our current goal is to feed 15 youth at each meal.

3 - Lead Programming.

Marrow programming includes one-off workshops, recurring classes, community projects, events,

Our programming is led by real makers, doers and thinkers from the Portland community. Some individuals are at Marrow on a regular basis, and others have organized a single event or workshop.
