Volunteer & Donation Information to Support Asylum Seekers

Volunteer and Donation Information

Thank you to those who have expressed a wish to volunteer your time and services in helping us as we support asylum seekers arriving in Portland. Thanks to our friends at the United Way of Greater Portland, we now have a coordinated and secure way to accept volunteers. 

Please visit https://www.unitedwaygp.org/2019/06/14/expo-shelter/  to sign up to volunteer. As shelter security is of the utmost importance, please do not show up at the Expo without receiving a volunteer assignment. You will be turned away. 

The most pressing need is still for financial resources. To donate directly to the City to cover shelter/housing needs and basic necessities, please visit www.portlandmaine.gov/donate. The easiest way to donate is to text the word EXPO to 91999.
