Volunteer Projects

Urgent Volunteer Needs:

1.We have a landscape opportunity where one of our MH parents has an excess of bark chips to donate. We need volunteers to collect the bark chips, deliver to both the Nest and the primary location and spread around our play areas. We may have a pick up truck available for transporting chips. 

Please let me know if this is something you might be available to help with over the next week or next weekend. Contact Katie: info@themontessorihouse.org

2.Art Walk- Soliciting and collecting donations for the Silent Auction. We would love to get this started this month, as it can take some time. See Jessamyn for more info. Here is the sign up for all art walk jobs: HERE
