Something for everyone!
We always welcome new volunteers to our agency and our programs. Some volunteers have been volunteering with us regularly since 1989, while others may volunteer at one or two fundraising events per year. We do our best to accommodate your interests, skills and schedule. Volunteers can help with many things at Project Transitions:
e-Bay Store Manager: We need a volunteer to help run the e-Bay store for Top Drawer Thrift store. You'll post items for sale, follow-up with buyers, answer questions and help with shipping.
Public Relations: We are looking for experienced volunteers to help us with Public Relations tasks such as press releases, planning publicity strategies, implementing a monthly giving program and organizing promotional events.
Gardeners and landscapers are needed at our facilities to keep them an inviting place for our tenants. Introduce a monthly service project to your family, scout troop, youth group, circle of friends, etc. There are one-time and ongoing opportunities to fit your schedule.
Handymen and suppliers are needed to aid in our quest to keep our properties in good repair. Some items we are in need of are new cabinetry, bathtubs, and appliances. We also are in need of the linoleum tile floors being buffed and refinished. If you are a handyman or have access to construction and building materials to donate, we'd love to hear from you.
Silent Auction Committee: We are putting together a committee to help year-round with procuring items for our fundraisers.
- You'll help develop a solicitation action plan (including a wish list and potential sources of donations)
- Using personal and business contacts, personally solicit auction items
- Attend Auction Committee meetings and calls as scheduled
