I currently volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House as an in-house volunteer and as a craft activities coordinator. The East House provides a comfortable and welcoming shelter for its guests, and I love being a part of the volunteer team!
I help out at the HIV Day Center as needed in different capacities. I’ve had great fun working in the kitchen and assisting in craft activities, special events, and documentation. The staff create a nurturing, welcoming community for all — it’s a joy to be able to help in any way I can.
I have also found the perfect marriage between volunteering and social life in The Portland Volunteer Vixens. The organizers are wonderfully successful at providing varied volunteer and fundraising opportunities to women in the Portland area, all within a social setting! They’re also great at capturing event photos:
