WANTED Weekend Warriors

Jenn  ·  Oct. 4, 2010

September was a real struggle for volunteers. Almost every weekend they were short up at SAINTS and Carol is so busy, she has a difficult time keeping track of who said they were or were not coming up on a particular day and whether or not an area has coverage. In addition, she is in desperate need for more volunteers. Therefore, she has asked me to take on the role of volunteer coordinator. Most non-profits have a volunteer coordinator. The role is new for SAINTS and thus the exact role is still to be decided but I found this general "job description" online and I thought it pretty well covered what Carol envisions the role to be. This role would be done by me on a volunteer basis and thus the scope of the role will be largely dependent upon how much I can do within 5 or so hours a week.

*SAINTS is currently in need of volunteers for all areas to help with cats, dogs, rabbits and the barn animals on saturdays and sundays. Duties include cleaning, feeding, laundry, grooming, and giving tours*

If you or anyone you know would like to be a SAINTS weekend warrior please email me:

Also, if all existing volunteers could email me too that would be fantastic.

she wants to create an existing volunteer email list to smooth the flow of communication (because she conveniently has her degree in communication and i sort of suck in this area.)
