cranberry sauce needed!

CRANBERRY SAUCE NEEDED!

Greetings Friends! Sunshine Division, a local emergency food relief agency, is gearing up for our holiday food box program. We hope to pack and deliver 4,000 holiday food boxes to families and individuals in need right here in Portland in December. In order to do this, we need YOUR HELP!

Sunshine Division is seeking businesses, schools, churches and other organizations to help us by hosting a cranberry sauce drive in September and October! Sunshine needs 2,500 more cans of cranberry sauce to have enough to provide each of our 4,000 families with the fixings for a complete holiday meal. That equals about 10 full collection barrels of cranberries or about 2,000 lbs of sauce!

Northwest Volunteer Administrators Assoc ( NOVAA) meeting tomorrow Thursday Sept 18 noon

Hello,

Just a reminder that you're invited to join us tomorrow, September 18th at 12 noon for NOVAA's monthly meeting. The featured topic will be;

Meetings that work!

Whatever your frustrations might be around running meetings, this workshop will seek to address them. The strategies covered in this session will range from simple planning ideas so that everyone leaves the meeting feeling like it was time well spent; to handling those challenging moments when people are upset and interacting in such a way that more problems are being solved, rather resolving problems.
