Holiday Toy and Food Drive
At holiday time, OML members open their hearts to the underprivileged children and families living in the Bay Area. In 2013 our toy and food donations will go to the Monument Crisis Center in Concord. See the flyer for donation details.
Burckhalter Elementary School
We adopted Burckhalter Elementary School in 1993, tutoring students or staffing the library at this underserved school located off of Highway 13 in Oakland. If you want a volunteer opportunity that offers incredible rewards, please consider these opportunities:
- In the Library: Volunteers work Mondays or Thursdays helping with book selection and have two computers available for checking books out. Orientation classes and story telling are additional enrichment activities the volunteers provide.
- In the classroom: Tutors work with students in K - 5th grade, usually one day a week.
- 5th Grade Writing Workshop: A team has students write paragraphs and reports related to classroom reading assignments.
