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!

Thank you admin team!

posted Jun 16, 2016, 1:53 PM by Jenn Forristal

Early this year, our Member Center sent surveys to hundreds of OPB Members to find more about why Members turn to OPB as a trusted source of news, information, arts, and culture. A stellar team of 36 admin volunteers spent over 170 hours compiling information collected from about 3,900 Members! Their help was invaluable to the Member Center and provided important information about what Members enjoy, value, and for what they rely on OPB.

Thank you admin team!
