Fishing excursions, the Oregon State Fair, farms, pumpkin patches, and more. These are all activities our guests participate in during their visits. Would you like to help make these events more fun for our guests? We would love to have volunteers we can periodically call on to help our staff with these outings.
Treasure Night Volunteers
Treasure Nights are a once-a-month activity night that consists of songs, Biblical messages, prayer, games, crafts, and refreshments. This is a safe and wonderful opportunity for people of all ages to become involved in reaching out to people with developmental disabilities.
Examples of volunteer activities include: providing refreshments, leading the singing, leading a prayer, presenting a message (materials are provided), facilitating games or a crafts, setting up and cleaning up the room.
Being a volunteer at a Treasure Night requires approximately three hours per month for the Treasure Night event, plus 2 hours for initial training, and one hour twice per year for planning.
When I come here, the word disability disappears into capabilities.
