Forever Green Portland Community Stand
Current mood: blessed
I just got back from the Portland Forever Green Community Stand. What an amazing group of people! Every month we donate a few hours to the community. We just formed, so this was our first Stand. We picked the Oregon Food Bank. We will be doing this once a month from now on. We picked OFB because we are about health, kindness and opportunity. People who receive their food from OFB need a big dose of all of these things.
We showed up with energy and enthusiasm. Although we were the smallest group volunteering today, everyone else noticed something was going on. Our energy spread and was contagious in a fabulous, fun, enthusiastic way. We plowed through packaging our crate (VERY LARGE crate), and then went on to help all the other groups finish their crates, and the pasta groups finish their packaging, as well! We set our intention to send this positive transformational energy to everyone recieving the food and to the food bank itself.
The foodbank organizers were surprised and seemed almost in disbelief at the amount of food that was packaged today. That is the power of positive intention.
I love this group of people and feel very grateful and honored to be a part of the team.
