Let's Sort It Out with Media Foundation (age 14+) *Hands On*

Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

"The Media Foundation is like the Oregon Food Bank of media!" - Intel volunteer

Mission: Our MISSION is to reduce dependency that smaller non-profits have on cash contributions to achieve their vision, while magnifying the impact they are having on the community.

Vision: Our VISION is seeing smaller non-profits spending the majority of their time focusing on their mission without the distractions and significant time lost associated with fundraising efforts.

Volunteers assist us by doing similar work to what you would do in a second-hand media store or library. This includes cataloging, cleaning, sorting, prioritizing, and filing the book, CD, DVD, video game, and software donations we receive. 

Volunteer Requirements:

  • must be able to alphabetize
  • must be able to use scissors without supervision 
  • must be at least 14 years old (if under 18 must attend with a parent or adult chaperone and bring a Youth Volunteer Release Form signed by their parent or legal guardian. Please download, complete, and bring this waiver with you on the day of the project.)
