We are looking for volunteers interested in joining or leading a team. It takes many of us to accomplish our mission to support our troops, veterans, and their families. If you are interested in any of the following areas, please contact Ginny at email@example.com.
Community Outreach Team – help us to reach out and connect with our community. We need to get the word out about Military Missions and get others involved in supporting our programs. We need a liaison who is willing to work with specific target areas to keep people informed and get them involved.
- Team members are being recruited to coordinate with churches, schools, businesses, clubs and organizations, etc.
- Team members are being recruited to help us schedule information tables and booths at ongoing events in our community or in conjunction with local businesses.
- Team members are being recruited for our Drop Box Team. Help us get donation boxes placed throughout the community.
Grants/Fundraising Team – Up to this point, Military Missions has relied on the donations given by individuals and small groups. With the sluggish economy, giving is down. We are looking for someone who has experience with fundraising and seeking available grants. We hope to broaden our ability to bring in donations so that we can continue to serve our military, veterans, and their families. Contact Ginny at firstname.lastname@example.org.
