Eat Pasta for OrMOM: Two Pastini locations (NW 23rd & Quimby and SE Division & 20th) are hosting a pasta-thon on October 3rd & 4th for OrMOM supporters to come in and dine at lunch or dinner, or to order takeout food. Bring in this flier or mention Mission of Mercy Octoberfeast. Pastini will donate 50% of the net proceeds back to MOM, which equates to 20% of the money spent by supporters. So, for every $100 spent, $20 will be donated.

Have you talked with your family, friends and colleagues about joining you at OrMOM? As many of you know, it's an incredible opportunity to give back during Thanksgiving week.
We still need people in all areas to make this work - from dental and medical professionals to non-health professional members of the community. Here are some things that might help you to recruit volunteers to join you:
|Email Addresses/ Communications|
If your office/organization used the same email address to register more than one volunteer, you will only receive one copy of this newsletter (Constant Contact will not send duplicates). You may have also noticed that volunteer schedules do not have names attached (this cannot be customized in our registration system). If you would like separate emails sent in the future, please send the volunteers' names and individual email addresses to OrMOM@oregondental.org, and we'll update our system accordingly. We respect your privacy and will not use any volunteers' emails for anything unrelated to OrMOM. We appreciate your understanding as we work with a low-cost system in order to keep overhead down and maximize the power of donations.
