Fig Tree’s 2011-12 Resource Directory will be out in July: volunteers needed

The Fig Tree needs volunteers to assist with phone calls to verify data, edit copy, prepare mailings and deliver bulk quantities of the 2011-12 Resource Directory: Guide to Congregations and Community Resources.

For the fifth year, The Fig Tree is publishing the directory, and for the third year, it is publishing it in collaboration with Community Colleges of Spokane, Spokane County Headstart/ECEAP, which previously published its own directory. 

This will be the 39th annual edition of the publication, which was started by the Spokane Christian Coalition and its successor organizations, the Spokane Council of Ecumenical Ministries and the Interfaith Council.

To assist with printing the 2011-12 edition, The Fig Tree recently received a $1,000 grant from the Catholic Foundation of Eastern Washington.  It also received a grant of $500 from the foundation to purchase software to network the database for the newspaper and directory.

Malcolm Haworth, directory editor, has prepared the directory since The Fig Tree took on its publication.

Assisting him this year are Ginny Terpening of CCS Headstart/ECEAP; Brenda Waga, who is on The Fig Tree staff through Career Path Services, and Jacquie Echelberger, who is on staff through American Association of Retired Persons.

Mary Stamp, The Fig Tree editor, and Yvonne Lopez-Morton, associate editor, are responsible for selling advertising to help cover the costs of production. 

They have extended the deadline, because ad space is still available and critically needed to support the venture.

Malcolm said that any corrections must be submitted by June 10.

Malcolm urges those involved with nonprofit, government and other community service agencies to be sure that their listings are current.  They may email changes to
