OrMOM Volunteer News 12/6/2010
Greetings! Oregon Mission of Mercy logo
Thank you for sharing your time and talents with us during Thanksgiving week. With your assistance, we had a very successful first Oregon Mission of Mercy. Together, we provided almost $830,000 worth of treatment to 1,554 people! Check the sidebar to the left for more statistics.

As the OrMOM media sponsor, the Oregonian made it possible for us to place a full-page ad in the Thanksgiving Day issue which thanked sponsors and volunteers. ODA executive director, Bill Zepp, would also like to extend a special thank you for all of the complements to our staff that he has received from members and other volunteers.

Lost & Found

At the end of the clinic we ended up with quite a few unclaimed items. If you left a jacket, water bottle, gloves, etc. behind, please contact the Oregon Convention Center (503-235-7575) to see if they have it in their lost & found. If you walked away without personal dental instruments, please contact the ODA (503-218-2010 or We have a box of items that were left at sterilization.
