Pastini Pastathon

October 3rd & 4th


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.  Please share it with everyone you know!

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. 

Volunteer Orientation 


We need everyone volunteering on Monday and Tuesday to attend an orientation session prior to volunteering - even if you volunteered at OrMOM 2011 - so that we make sure that everyone is on the same page during the clinic.  If you are only volunteering for clinic set up and tear down, then you do not need to attend this session.
You are all invited to join us on Sunday evening (11/20) from 5:30 - 8pm at the Oregon Convention Center for dinner and volunteer orientation.   This is a great time to pick up your volunteer packet & shirt/scrub top, undergo OrMOM orientation, tour the clinic and meet with your department lead for a department-level orientation.
Please RSVP here so that we can plan accordingly.  Thank you to the Bomber Restaurant for catering this event for us.

While we would encourage everyone to attend Sunday's orientation, if you are not available, orientation sessions will also be available prior to each shift on Monday and Tuesday.

Patients & Volunteers  

Patient flyers are now available online for download.  If you know someone who could benefit from OrMOM services, please feel free to share the following links/documents:


We've still got tasks for your friends, family and colleagues to volunteers  Please send them to:
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.
