Cool Volunteer Opportunity Sat Dec 3rd- helping folks facing foreclosure

this [is] from Oregon Opportunity Network, a group that works to establish and maintain decent affordable housing. Sounds fun, easy, and meaningful.

"Hello Portland-area Oregon ON community, NeighborWorks America is looking for about 80 volunteers to help staff an important family foreclosure-prevention event happening in Portland on Saturday, December 3. They are a great, effective organization so we are helping them get the word out. If you're feeling thankful for a warm roof over your head this rainy week, please consider grabbing your senior/student/community/church/business group and joining them (individual volunteers are welcome too of course)! They are holding this event in conjunction with the U.S. Treasury, HUD, Fannie Mae, and major lenders. Homeowners in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure can meet with their servicer and/or a housing counselor in an attempt to resolve their issues. They hope to see at least 500 families."
