Thank you Antiques Roadshow volunteers!

posted Aug 18, 2017, 2:50 PM by Jenn Forristal

Last weekend, OPB volunteers showed the community, and the country, that they are the best around. 126 dedicated and hard-working volunteers participated in what was one of the the longest Antiques Roadshow events ever, and they pulled it off with impressive professionalism and grace.

Without volunteers, Antiques Roadshow simply would not be possible. The results of their hard work will be enjoyed by millions of people across the country.

The new season of Antiques Roadshow will air on OPB starting in January 2018, and the Portland episode should air in April or May.

Thank you for a job well done!

If you’ve helped out during a radio or TV drive, you know that local restaurants donate a ton of delicious treats to show their support for OPB volunteers. What you may not know is that a team of awesome volunteers runs around town to pick up the donations and bring them to us every day throughout the drives. Whether is a morning Sesame Donut pick up, or an evening run to Chipotle, volunteers make it happen.

Thank you to our fabulous pick up team! We could not pull it off without you.

Outstanding One-Day Radio Drive!

posted Jan 3, 2017, 10:41 AM by Jenn Forristal

For the first time, OPB volunteers answered phones during our one-day, end-of-year radio drive... and they knocked it out of the park! We raised $169,36, which is more than double what we raised last year. And 35% of members joined the sustaining circle... an increase of 13% over last year. Wow!

Thank you to all of the volunteers who answered phones. The membership team really appreciates the outstanding customer service you provide our members.

Happy New Year!
