Volunteers play an essential role in maintaining our strong, vibrant community and expanding the impact of our neighborhood association. Without amazing volunteers that donate their time and effort, we would not be able to operate or serve our neighbors well. We believe that every resident in our community has something to offer, and we would love to know what skills, abilities and passions you would like to bring to our community group and neighborhood as a whole. This could include volunteering for events(like those listed below) or establishing a long-term volunteer role on a neighborhood association committee. We would love to hear from you about any interest you may have in volunteering! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have such a beautiful neighborhood, but sometimes it needs a little extra help. Especially in spring after the snow melts, our alleys can tend to not look as beautiful as we know they can. It's natural for trash and yard waste to accumulate without realizing it, especially for neighbors who might have mobility limitations or that have extensive work/family demands. But with only a little bit of time and effort from our community members, along with some rakes and gloves, we can help! If you would be willing to help clean up our neighborhood alleys, email email@example.com with the subject line "Alley Volunteer" to sign up for the next clean-up day!
Because of the beautiful park we have in our community, there are typically many community events that are hosted here during the summer. In recent years these have included events such as ArtPrize, the African American Arts and Music Festival, Movies in the Park and many more. Most of these events need community volunteers to make them possible. That help might include things like manning a booth, hosting a children's game, handing out food, setting-up, tearing-down, or just being a welcoming smiling face. So if you are willing to spend a day, or even just a couple hours, we would love your help! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Summer Events Volunteer" to get plugged in to any up coming events!
