 Wednesday Call Stars

Are you an ace customer service representative? Feel pretty confident about your consistent and attentive phone skills? Perhaps you are a natural born Call Star and you didn't even know it!

Call Stars join us on Wednesday evenings to call homeowners who are interested in getting trees with Friends of Trees. Callers help us connect with residents who simply need a little help choosing their perfect trees. This role excels with volunteers who are not shy of phones and can confidently navigate our online ordering system after a thorough training. The next two trainings for this role are on Wednesday, July 15th and 29th!

If this is the role for you - we'd love to hear from you! You may be in touch with Randi or Jenny in the Volunteer & Outreach Program anytime at 503-595-0213 or head over to our Current Needs volunteer form and select "Wednesday Call Stars".
