Well, it's that time
of the year again! It's Fair time! We are gearing up for our biggiest
education event of the year. 23 days of showing people who we are, what
we do, and hopefully how we do it! Over the course of the 5 weeks it's
going on we will pass out brochures, sign people up for this newsletter,
and take a lot of requests for information. There are a lot of people
out there that need help and don't even know that it is available!
since we need to staff the booth at all times that the Fair is open we
need help to do that. If you are in the Orange County (California) area
and think you can help at our booth please contact us by emailing
[email protected]. You will get a 3 to 4 hour shift and free
admission and parking! That means when you come to help out you can
enjoy the fair before and after your shift!
We are having a scheduling meeting at 2pm on Friday, July 5th at our office: 1001 N French Street #8 Santa Ana, CA 92701
Please stop by and get your name on the scedule in person, you will also be able to see the maps and pick up your passes.
other news we still need lots of help in the office. We are a bilingual
office using both English and ASL. You don't need to know sign language
to help us but we would like you to know how to type at least 10 WPM.
We really need help typing things and working on the grants. We have a
lot of other things to do too and I hope to be able to post a list of
our special projects soon.
need old cellphones! Please gather up the old cellphone and printer
carriages and send them our way. Reply to this email for more info.
are doing our annual Bowl-a-thon again at Tustin Lanes in March of
2014, date TBA. If you are interested in sponsoring a bowler or a lane,
or would like to donate door prize or raffle items please reply to this
message. We are looking for sponsors now and I should be able to get
the website up for this event by next month! As always we need
volunteers to help with the planning. You don't have to know sign
language to help us!
Our free fingerspelling workshops have been a success! Please contact Bobby at [email protected] or check the website at www.deafadvocacy.org for more info.
consider supporting us on Good Search, they have a lot of programs and
the interface is much better than I give. I have even been using their
firefox plug in for the last two days and it really doesn't get in my
way. Plus they made it really easy to uninstall. You don't have to get
the plug in or tool bar to help, Just go to the website, sign in (I used
Facebook) and search for the Orange County Deaf Advocacy Center to
support. You can also do that from our page on Good Search: http://www.goodsearch.com/nonprofit/orange-county-deaf-advocacy-center.aspx
Please let us know what you think, we really like feedback. You may reply directly to this email.
Thanks for reading :)
We plan to put more videos on our new YouTube channel and have them captioned, so if you like to transcribe stuff or always wanted to caption stuff this is a great time to volunteer!
We post the latest news on our Facebook page. There you can find news from around the world as well as the latest info about what is happening at OCDAC.
