Make an Impact without Making a Long-term Commitment

One-day Projects Designed to Fit Your Busy Schedule

by Genna Barfoot

One-day projects are a great way to help out at Wildlife Rescue, especially if you don't have a lot of time to volunteer. In April we had three different groups work on one-day projects. A group of mentors and mentees from Stanford placed 100 flyers around their campus in order to recruit new volunteers. We'd like to thank the following mentees: Silivia Rodriguz, Liliana Rodriguez, Jose Rodriguz and Nancy Martinez and mentors: Alix Berger, Jeanette Perez, Katie Leonberger and Melissa Mills.

Roger Nishimoto and Maureen Ho from Novartis Pharmacutical Corp. helped with a large bulk mailing as part of Novartis Community Service day. This is an annual event where all employees are encouraged to devote a full day of volunteer services to a local non-profit organization. All employees receive a full paid day for volunteer work. Thank you for all of your help!

The Key Club from Palo Alto High School spent two hours making up 50 volunteer folders for us. The Key Club is a youth volunteer club, which is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club. Thank you Debby Kao, Thomas Tachibana and Tracey Becker.

If you are interested in working on a one-day project, please contact the coordinator of volunteer programs at (650) 494-7417.
