    Fall FREE Store

    When you RSVP, please invite your friends, and please look to see if there are any ways for you to Signup and help out.

    Here's how it works in 3 easy steps:

    1. Click this link to see our volunteer openings: http://signup.com/go/GNHawRw
    2. Review the options listed and choose the spot(s) you like.
    3. Sign up! It's really that easy - you will NOT need to register an account or keep a password.

    Really though, did you already take a quick moment to INVITE ALL YOUR FRIENDS? Thank you, thank you! (The system only allows me send out invites to humans on my friends and this event is open to ALL current & former members of ITOV and MHM, as well as friends of The Rosewood Initiative)

    Our awesome host has graciously offered us space from 9am-5pm. This covers setup and decorating from 9-noon, we’ll adjourn for an hour, and shopping from 1-3pm (raffle starts at 1:11) and cleanup between 3-4pm. We couldn't make these happen without community support and there's a bunch of fun ways to be involved.

    How do I donate?
    Donations MUST BE LABELED and can be dropped off to one of a few locations before the event or brought directly to the event space.

    How do I label the donations?
    Writing on the bag/box with a marker is fine. Adding a piece of tape as a label is good, too. Please be considerate of the volunteers who help with the massive sorting at each event and mark your donations by the type/size that they are. If it's a mixed bag, that's fine. Simply write a label for whatever seems to be the primary category for your donation.

    When can I make a donation?
    The Rosewood Initiative will be accepting donations a few days before the event again.

    If you would like to drop off prior to the event in inner SE, PM Stephanie Kshama for arrangements. More drop off locations will be added as they become available.

    ---donations must be received no later than 10am on the 23rd, that’s three hours BEFORE the event begins---

    If I have nothing to donate, can I still come?
    YES, ABSOLUTELY! This is a community building event, first and foremost. Donations are encouraged so that more people have their needs met, but they are NOT required for your participation whatsoever. If you have the ability and desire to volunteer, please do. If you'd just like to come out to pick up some new stuff for you & your family, that's what we're doing this for! ;-) Besides... we always have stuff leftover at the end that is gifted to various charities so come get yours first.

    What can be donated?
    Just about everything you have seen in free item groups online!! Ya know, clean, gently used items in good working condition. This time around it would be awesome of people could bring spring/summer themed items. Outdoor toys, things that could be given as gifts, or spiffy "new" duds for the whole family, anything from amber necklaces to alphabet blocks, baby booties to bicycles, craft supplies to cozy coats, it's alllllll good.

    WHAT CANNOT BE DONATED
    Please take note that old TVs and other ancient electronics, soiled clothes, any item that requires ID for purchase, things too large/heavy for one person to lift are best left at home or disposed of elsewhere. The Rosewood Initiative should not be responsible for throwing away our garbage.

    How do we determine who gets what?
    Trust. We believe in this community's ability to give what they can and take what they need. We know that we live in abundance and that greed is not necessary. Some items, undoubtedly, will have a higher demand and to resolve any conflicts we will be placing those items into the free raffle.

    ----------RAFFLE FAQS----------

    DO I HAVE TO BUY A TICKET?
    Never! Anyone who comes to "shop" can get a free raffle ticket. Also, participating in the raffle isn't required, it's just fun. :-)

    CAN I BUY EXTRA TICKETS?
    Never! But, there's several ways that you can earn more than one. - Any mama who volunteers for at least 3 hours earns THREE extra tickets. Please sign up so we know who is covering which shifts. - Any mama who donates a winter coat, Halloween costume, or gift card/certificate valued at $10 or more earns ONE ticket per item.

    WHAT TIME WILL THE RAFFLE START?
    1:11. 1:11. 1:11!! The Fall Free Store opens at 1pm and we’ll get the ball rolling shortly after that.

    AND JUST WHAT IS IN THAT RAFFLE?
    In the past, our raffle prizes were determined the day of the event. If an item looked like something several mamas would want, we put it on the raffle table so that people don't have have worry about a first-come-first-serve status on the good stuff.

    CAN I SUBMIT ITEMS INTO THE RAFFLE FROM MY BUSINESS, TOO?
    Most definitely. If you're a crafty mama or someone who has a service to offer, send me a PM and we can work out the details of exactly how to submit a raffle item.

    And that's a free store.

    Restorative Justice Circle Training

    NEW LOCATION CHANGE! Now at Resolutions Northwest, 2538 NE Broadway

    LOCATION CHANGE! Now at The Rosewood Initiative

    Registration required: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/circletraining/


    Bringing restorative circles into your setting – whether school, program, agency, or organization – can be a very effective way to build relationships and create a strong community, and serves as the foundation for dealing with more challenging issues as they arise. In this day-long Circle Facilitation Training we will introduce community building circles, provide experiential opportunities to plan and model, and share circle facilitation tips. We will talk about components and stages of a circle and about how to address challenges. Based on participants’ needs, we may also examine specific circles, such as re-entry circles for community members who have been excluded previously.

    Registration required: https://resolutionsnorthwest.org/events/circletraining/


    Resolutions Northwest - Creating change. Balancing equity, privilege and power in our conversations and services.

    Rising Waters: a Community Dialogue on Displacement
    free

    The Rosewood Initiative

    Update: We rescheduled this event to Wednesday 6/28 so it doesn't conflict with Good in the Hood on Saturday!

    Join Living Stages, Ignorant/Reflections and Laquida Landford for an interactive community dialogue about community displacement. Through interactive performance, conversation, and theatrical games we'll build community and explore questions of place, home, and possibility within a framework of ongoing community displacement in Portland.

    This event is made possible by a grant from APANO Jade/Midway Placemaking Initiative, with much appreciation to APANO for support in this project.
