We would love for you to join us in welcoming our newest community members at PDX!
No sign-up required! If you want to join us on a particular day, we suggest that you check our private Facebook page for last-minute flight delays, cancellations, and early arrival notifications as flights are subject to change. Simply plan to meet staff and volunteers at the arrival area listed. Welcome signs and small gifts like balloons, flowers, and fruit are fine, but they are by no means expected.
These flight notifications are now only being sent to our vetted volunteers, out of concerns for our client's safety and well-being. We are also limiting the information we share prior to arrival. However, you are welcome to invite friends and family to join you at the airport to greet our newest neighbors. Use your discretion with whom you invite, and please do not share this publicly.
