First Federal Community Rewards
First Federal President and CEO Jim Scholtfeldt (Left); with construction volunteers (L to R) Howard Leichter, Kent Stevens, Kurt Holmgreens, Gerry Koschal, Al Bartsch, and Steve Iverson; MacHabitat Construction Manager, KB Boutwell; First Federal Community Impact Coordinator, Kathie Byers (Front Left); MacHabitat Executive Director, Mary Stern (Front Middle); and First Federal VP and Branch Manager and MacHabitat Board Secretary, Tara Quincy, out at the construction site in 2019!
With First Federal’s Community Rewards, your volunteer time can earn funds for the Yamhill County nonprofit organizations you serve.

Program Details
If you are a First Federal customer, for every hour you volunteer, First Federal contributes $2 to MacHabitat.

MacHabitat is eligible to earn up to $500 in any given year, with the total donation based on the number of active volunteer hours submitted during the time the program is open. The First Federal Community Rewards program closes when the 10,000th hour of volunteer time is received. Contributions are based on the total number of hours submitted and are disbursed at the close of the program.

Please let Emily-Grace know if you are a First Federal customer so she can submit your hours. If you are not a customer and would like to open an account so we can submit your hours, you can visit a local branch to do so!
Volunteer Opportunities
With many pandemic protocols being lifted, we are slowly filling volunteer positions at the ReStore and Construction site! If you are interested in volunteering, click here or contact Emily-Grace at emilygrace@machabitat.org or 503-687-1412!

July 17 - 31, 2021

Construction: We are working on framing the upstairs of our 2021 Women Build home. This is a job anyone over the age of 16 can do; no construction experience needed! Construction build days are Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 8AM-2 or 3PM. You can work a full or partial day. 
 
ReStore: We always need help in the ReStore (Tuesday-Saturday 9AM-5PM). Although most cashier shifts are accounted for, we do have some gaps to fill.
 
If you haven't been trained in any of these areas and would like to be an “on-call” fill-in person or a regular volunteer, please let us know and we will train you!
 
Specific times we need help in the ReStore during July 9 - 14 are:

  • Cashier for Saturday, 7/17/21 from 10AM-1PM and 1PM-4PM
  • Cashier for Saturday, 7/24/21 from 10AM-1PM and 1PM-4PM
  • Cashier for Saturday, 7/31/21 from 10AM-1PM and 1PM-4PM
 
To get on the volunteer schedule at either the ReStore or the Construction site, please contact Emily-Grace at 503-687-1412 or emilygrace@machabitat.org.
