Other Ways to Volunteer

Office Assistance

We are always in need of skilled volunteers and general assistance in the office. Office volunteers help keep us running smoothly by doing filing, data entry, phone calls, grant writing, graphic design, mailings, clerical work, materials compilation, special projects, and more. If you have a specific skill or special talent that you would like to share, give us a call at (714) 566-3070, or email us at readoc@occr.ocgov.com
