Meal Train

Meal Train helps you help others! 

Know someone who needs a helping hand? Meal Train is a free website that enables you to organize meal-giving for friends or family at a time when they need help most – the arrival of a new baby, a sudden illness or injury, a fire that burns a home, or the loss of a loved one.

At the Meal Train website, you specify your “person in need”, set up a schedule for meal delivery, and invite friends, acquaintances, congregation members, and neighbors to sign up to deliver meals. It’s simple, easy, and free!

Meal Train Plus (at the same website) enables you to organize other kinds of support, such as housework, child care, or lawn care.

Hazeltine Park Ribbon Cutting and Planting Event a Huge Success!

On Saturday, December 1st, Dick Hazeltine cut the ribbon on his namesake park with Portland Parks and Recreation Project Manager Eric Rosewall.

Volunteers from the Johnson Creek Watershed, Scout Pack 523, Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association, and more worked through the rainy morning to beautify this community space.

A memorial tree to Dick’s late wife, Opal Hazeltine, who was instrumental in the park’s formation, was planted in approximately the spot her desk occupied when the space was home to the community policing building.

Longtime neighbor and BDNA board member, Malcolm Hancock, presented Dick Hazeltine with a model swing set for the park.

Dick Hazeltine (left) gave his approval with Eric Rosewall (right) after the planting was completed.

Be sure to visit Hazeltine Park’s completed playscape area and join us in the spring to finish the planting!

EPIC Meeting: Portland Police Air Support Unit

Where: East Precinct Community Room (737 SE 106th Ave, 97216)

Keynote presentation: Portland Police Bureau’s Air Support Unit

When criminals flee from the police they sometimes evade the patrol officers who are pursuing them.

  • Who can follow them when they think they are free from capture?
  • Who can watch them as the drive recklessly through the city?
  • Who sees them run through backyards in the middle of the night?

Join East Portland Involved Citizens (EPIC) when Portland Police Bureau’s Chief Pilot, Sergeant Josh Goldschmidt, will answer these and other questions as he explains the workings of the Air Support Unit. 

Other agenda items:

  • Vision for East Precinct
  •  Name Recognition Interaction
  • East Precinct Update
