Looking for Volunteers!

Posted April 1st, 2010 @ 12:24 PM by

Wanna volunteer? I can put you to work . . .

I’m currently looking for volunteers in a variety of areas for a variety of projects, if you are interested in any of these, please let me know.

DUMPSTER DIVING
Today, at 10:30 until we move another 2,000 carpet square. Anyone? My office manager Erika and I, with the help of SJC board member and former staff Rick Fairchild during his lunch break and after work, have moved 1,000 carpet squares so far . . . but we’re no where near done.

Come on, doesn’t it look like fun!

BLOGGERS
Anyone interested in doing some blogging? I can teach you and you don’t have to do it every day or scribe meetings like I do, you can give opinions, report on issues of importance to you and your neighborhood. It’s really up to you, I just ask you keep it local.

TELEVISION STUDIO CREW?
What are you doing Sunday nights at 7 or 8pm? Would you be willing to learn to help out in the studio, help line up guests, run cameras if necessary, etc. If you’re interested in helping out a night or two a month, or learning to shoot video and edit it, let me know.

RESEARCH
Campaign finance reports, lobbying reports, statement of interest forms, school budget, zoning code rewrite, researching old houses, various housing issues, funding resources etc etc etc. It all needs some research and work to be done, if you’re interested, let me know.

ORGANIZING/COMMUNICATIONS
Don’t mind writing talking points, press releases, and email alerts? Good with twitter, facebook and social media? Can you help get the word out on various issues?

GARDENING
Both the Social Justice Center and the James Madison Park gardens could use some help throughout the summer.

LAYING CARPET TILES
The Social Justice Center is going to have nearly 3,000 of them to lay. It may include helping move things.

HOUSING COUNSELORS AND MEDIATORS
We’re always looking for people interested in helping with housing counseling which we will train or trained mediators that are available to to to small claims court on Tuesdays.

So, did you see something that caught your eye in that blur of work, political and personal interest of mine? If so, email me at brendakonkel@gmail.com or . . . call me at 345-8720. Most of it you can be trained to do!
