Do you have an empty garage, storage space, basement or warehouse?  Family Forward Oregon is a small start-up non-profit looking for a space to store donated clothes, toys, and other baby items like high chairs or strollers.  We plan to hold a garage-sale fundraiser in the spring, but need somewhere to keep the accumulating pile of donations until then.

Volunteering

Volunteer Graphic Designer for REACH CDC

In the last year, REACH has established graphic design standards to refine our brand image and create consistency within materials viewed by the public at large. REACH is able to have some materials done by paid graphic designers, but the rest of our materials are designed by staff, and could be improved by a volunteer who is skilled and talented in design.

In turn, the volunteer will be able to add materials to their portfolio, build experience, and be credited as a contributor to REACH.
