Love is not love if it does not serve and sacrifice.
– Swami Chinmayananda

Hari OM!

To give back to our community, we have committed as a team to remove litter from our adopted street which is a segment of 173rd street from Cornell Rd to Walter Rd. on a quarterly basis. For volunteering hours, please make sure to get our Adopt-A-Roadway coordinator’s initials after this event participation. Beaverton city requires volunteers to be at least 12 years old or older. And if the volunteer is between 12-17 years then must print, sign and bring the waiver. The link also has information on the adopt-a-roadway program, safety rules, faq, etc. which you may optionally want to read.

We also encourage you to donate towards the many humanitarian activities Chinmaya Mission Portland does under the auspices of CORDUSA, like Homeless Shelter Cooking & Feeding, Oregon Food Bank, Free English Language Learner programs, Refugee help, School Supplies donation, etc. We will keep it as the seed money dedicated to these activities. Please check with your employer about matching grants, it doubles your donation’s impact today!

PLEASE NOTE: No one under 12 years of age is allowed to participate or to be on-site during a clean-up. Late arrival for the event is NOT possible.

    Develop noble and enduring qualities. Watch in others for weaknesses that you should guard against, in yourself. Love all. Serve all. Love creates and lust destroys the peace in the heart of man.

    Hari OM!

    On Saturdays, we cook for a homeless shelter…

    Since 2013, we have been collaborating with Transition Projects to serve Portland’s most vulnerable residents. Volunteers cook and serve meals at a homeless shelter, for about 100-120 residents, every Saturday. Few service projects do as much immediate good or offer such a meaningful, personal experience as volunteering to prepare and serve a meal to people in need.

    *During the COVID-19 pandemic, all meal providing is “delivery only,” and volunteers cannot enter the shelter to cook or serve. We are cooking either at home or at Haridwar following all COVID-19 guidelines. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us and we will connect you with Ravi, who coordinates this activity.

    We encourage you to sponsor one time meal for the shelter ($150) or part of the meal through the button below, we will keep it as the seed money dedicated for this activity.  Please check with your employer about matching grants, it doubles your donation’s impact today!

    Thank you for your kindness & generosity in advance!
