Fans are invited to join the volunteer efforts and team up with Timbers players, ambassadors, mascot Timber Joey and staff members on the various efforts throughout the city.

Supported by partners adidas, Alaska Airlines, Fred Meyer, JELD-WEN Windows & Doors and KPTV, Stand Together Week kicks off Monday, Oct. 8, with the painting of classrooms and hallways at the Portland YouthBuilders campus. A complete schedule of activities and events is listed below.
The volunteer opportunities affiliated with Stand Together Week range from leading youth activities to outdoor/garden maintenance and construction projects.
