Volunteer Opportunities!

September 4, 2012

Volunteer at VegFest 2012!
When: Friday September 21 - Sunday September 23
Where: Oregon Convention Center
Details: More than 300 volunteers are needed to help make Northwest VEG's 8th Annual VegFest a success. Did you know that volunteering for just one 3-hour shift earns you free admission to BOTH days of VegFest?! We still need help with setup, cleanup, passing out food samples, working at recycling stations, in the children's or teen area (face painters and makeup artists needed), leafleting outside OCC and dressing up in a veggie costume. You can also help beforehand by signing up to distribute posters and postcards around town to promote VegFest. We need your help to make this year's VegFest the best yet!
Please email Chelsea Davis, Northwest VEG's Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, for more information at volunteer@nwveg.org.

Table with us at the upcoming OHSU Farmers Market and Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Farm Animals
Details: Volunteers are needed to help staff the Northwest VEG table at upcoming OHSU Farmers Market and Farm Sanctuary's Walk for Farm Animals. This will entail talking to interested attendees about plant-based diets and Northwest VEG offerings (including our classes, potlucks, presentations, and more); handing out literature, directing attendees to additional resources and recipes as necessary; and generally putting a positive face to plant-based diets. New volunteers will be paired with experienced volunteers!
Please email Chelsea Davis, Northwest VEG's Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, for more information at volunteer@nwveg.org.
