Volunteers will be required to reach out to businesses for in-kind (products and services) donations mostly via emails, and occasionally by phone. This requires attention to detail, and mostly ability to copy, paste, edit, and repeat! Volunteers are kindly requested to come to our office to join our Marketing and Fundraising team and use our laptops/computers to join as we do some outreach. Other opportunities with this event include assisting on the night of the event with greeting guests, selling raffle tickets and other fundraising initiatives.
