They will then need to be stamped, labeled and taken to the mailbox. We will also need additional support to update donor contact information in our database, and organize and archive office files.

Stuff, seal, stamp, and label envelopes - for example, put one invitation and one remit envelope into a larger envelope, then seal and stamp it.
