Our Current Greatest Needs

Thrift store:

We are looking for help with our Pop-Up Thrift Store. It would entail some muscle helping set up a tent and fixtures in the. morning and then helping to take down in the evening or late afternoon.    Help is also needed with other tasks that are more fun with a friend volunteering with you.  Contact Lucy at  memorymattersutah@gmail.com.

Fall event:

Volunteers are needed to help with planning and promoting the upcoming Fall Event scheduled for September.  Our goal is to raise awareness of the services Memory Matters provides and raise much-needed funding. Contact Janet at 435.319.0407 or janet.labrum.mmu@gmail.com.

Grant Writers:

We are also looking for individuals who can volunteer their time to assist with grant writing to help us keep our services going.   We meet twice a month as a working grant committee. Contact Janet at 435.319.0407 or janet.labrum.mmu@gmail.com.
