All community members are invited to COME
ON THRU to show support for our Portland educators and pick up fun "we love our teachers" SWAG! As families drive (or bike / scooter / walk) thru, we will have a few different fun stations. Please get the word out through your networks, especially school PTAs! (see link below for requesting PTA support)
For more information about the Drive Thru event:
In conjunction with the Drive Thru event, our PAT Mutual Aid Team will kick-off our first day of action on October 15th starting at the Drive Thru event.
Fellow Educators will come together to provide needed supplies to houseless neighbors near our union hall and also pick up trash to help with the upkeep of our collective neighborhood. Please arrive at the PAT office at 11:30 am on the 15th for basic safety protocols and be prepared to go out with a team from 12-1:30, returning to the PAT office to debrief with fellow educators. Due to the safety protocols, this mutual aid project cannot include children or pets.
Know for sure you will join us? Email [email protected] and/or just show up! The first 14 people to show up will be on the 2 streets teams for October 15th.
To support the PAT Mutual Aid Street Team, people can bring the following to the PAT union hall on October 15th during the drive-through:
Warm winter socks, Fresh men's and women's underwear (sizes medium and large), Rain jackets/gear, Antibiotic ointment, Bandaids, Hydration (bottled water, Gatorade, iced tea, lemonade...)
