ONGOING VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

 

Office Help

Do you live near Portland?  Help is needed to clip media articles, file reports and occasionally stamp & stuff envelopes for membership mailings.  If you’d like to help out in the office for an hour or two a week contact Molly Quaid at 207-761-5616 or send an email.

 

Media Scanners

We need volunteers all across Maine to scan their local papers for articles and letters to the editor that have to do with environmental issues, clip those articles out and send them in to the chapter office.
