Summer 2017 is turning out to be one of the hottest on record for Oregonians. At MetroEast we love our volunteers, community partners and clients and want you to stay healthy. So stay hydrated and keep cool! This is especially important for babies, children, the elderly and infirm. And don't forget about your pets!
Last week, we shot several takes for our Spanish public service announcement about the importance of voting.

MetroEast is gearing up for all of the summer festivals and parades that happen here in East County and we need volunteers! While we always welcome volunteer crew members, we really need folks that can help us table and interact with the community at various summer events around the community.
