Donating your time, talent and expertise to one of the committees at Parenting Now can be personally rewarding, professionally expansive, and a great way to meet other alumni and community volunteers interested in parenting education and families. Committee work is a vital help to Parenting Now in furthering its mission and goals. From event planning to fundraising, marketing and public relations to finance, there is a committee that can use your inspiration and involvement.
Be an Ambassador
This is probably the most important way alumni can help the organization. Let pregnant and newly parenting families know how important Parenting Now has been to you and encourage them to visit our website or call us to learn more about our programs. Tell new parents about Baby Connection, too!
Help with Parenting Now's Auction
Plan to assist with our largest fundraiser of the year, our annual auction. Help is needed in many areas: preparing for the event by wrapping items, tying bows, making props, cutting out numbers, and bagging wine (getting wine donations is needed, too!) as well as assisting on the event day with set-up, silent auction, selling tickets, stage props, assisting guests, etc. Call Kathryn Gaines at 541-349-7793 or send her an e-mail.
Take a Get-Acquainted Tour
We’ve been helping to strengthen families since 1978! Three decades of experience has enabled us to develop the kind of expertise that’s in demand around the country—and the world! We are not currently giving get-acquainted tours because our office is closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. When we open up again, we invite you to take a tour of our facility, learn about the spectrum of programs and services we offer, and the populations they serve. Learn about our plans for the future, and how we can work together to make parenting education and support available for all parents. Contact Kathryn Gaines at 541-349-7793 or send her an email.
Volunteers are needed to make photocopies, do filing, and assemble packets—on a schedule that’s convenient for you. Our Volunteer Coordinator will be delighted to hear from you!
Special Event Representative
We like to be at events where Parenting Now can connect with new families. We provide fun activities for kids and information for parents. You can take a shift or two and get to attend the event for free! During the Covid-19 pandemic, these opportunities are not currently available, but we'd like to know if you're interested in this. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator
