Packing Parties Full, But We Still Need You
Would you believe that EVERY packing party between now and the end of this school year is now FULL of volunteers? Thanks to all of you for signing up. We couldn't do this work without you.
If you didn't get a chance to pack food for the kids this year, we'd be happy to have you help next fall. In the meantime, though, you might want to consider joining our Management Team, which meets once a month. We're currently looking to fill these positions:
- Volunteer Coordinator, who (1) schedules food-related workers on the volunteer calendar and (2) trains a small number of volunteers to oversee weekly packing parties and food distribution to the school sites. (Note: Thiswould be a particularly fine time to sign up for this job, as most of the calendaring of volunteers for the remainder of the school year is already done. You could take your time learning the ropes!)
- Public Relations Manager, who works through the media to inform the general public of BBP news and share BBP human-interest stories, thereby raising popular awareness of its mission, encouraging donations and recruiting volunteers.
- Community Outreach Coordinator, who works to raise BBP's visibility among Brookings civic organizations and other community groups in order to raise awareness about its mission, encourage donations and recruit volunteers. (Note: Outreach to religious organizations and outreach to local businesses are already being handled by other Team Members.)
If you'd like to discuss the possibility of serving in one of these capacities, please contact us as soon as possible. All of us who work for BBP may be volunteers, but our wages for caring are extraordinary!
