Dear   -


Thank you for registering to volunteer for the 2011 Oregon Mission of Mercy!  We are in full planning mode for this year's clinic and thought that we should send you a note about some FUNdraising events that are quickly approaching, as well as give you a few details about the clinic.  We'll send you a few more of these newsletters in the time leading up to the clinic so that you know what is going on and are comfortable with your role.

Volunteer Recruitment

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, 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.
