A message from Jill York
Board members bore (oops – board!), leaders lead, tutors “tut”, grant experts write. I think it is time for a new group of volunteers to take on tasks that need doing but require a different set of skills and interests. We’re looking for people to:
- create, organize and oversee both volunteer recognition and community events
- possibly look for potential places to spread the word and make it happen
- recruit organizations to donate money, food, publicity, and create corporate sponsorships
- assure that such events are adequately staffed, oversee logistics, and assure that necessary materials are available
Frankly, I think it could be a lot of fun, a fantastic learning experience, and, most importantly, a great opportunity to promote literacy. Getting involved this way would also be a perfect opportunity for HS students to fulfill their community service obligations.
Hope we can make this happen. If interested, please contact me at:
