Thelma’s Place, a non-profit resource center for people and their families living with memory loss, provides volunteers with many opportunities to make a difference for those who can no longer help themselves.
From teaching, fund raising, speaking at local events, playing music, crafting, doing office work, driving our van, and even being a social butterfly–your talent will help us immensely! Many people say they get back so much more than they give when they volunteer. See the Wish List below or contact Ellen in Canby at 503.266.5100 or Stephanie in Redmond at 541.548.3049 to learn how to put your talents and time to good use at Thelma’s Place.
