Current Volunteer Needs
January/ February 2021
Monday, January 18, 2021 is a Day of Service in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Now is the perfect time to consider how you will serve your community not only on this day, but throughout the year ahead.
Volunteering your time to help your child’s school is a wonderful way to serve others and build community!
*We are currently seeking a few volunteers to help in the planning/coordinating of a Virtual Variety Show to be held in March. This would be a fun way to use your talents to help “bring folks together” while we are physically apart.
In addition to this event, we have many other volunteer opportunities for short term or long term commitments. Please check out current volunteer needs below, or email our Volunteer Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org to get connected with something that is a good fit for you.
Thank you for being an important part of MVM!
How will you Get Involved?
Community Outreach Volunteers
Perhaps now, more than ever, it is important that we seek opportunities to connect with other families in our community. Are you interested in planning and/or hosting some Virtual Events to build and strengthen our relationships? Would you love to help with school tours, teacher appreciation, and welcoming new families to our community? If you answered yes to any of those, Community Outreach is waiting for your email!
We are looking for committee members to:
- Plan and host Virtual Community Coffee events (or Virtual Happy Hours, game nights, etc!)
- Lead our Hospitality Committee in planning and coordinating special events in our community, such as: meals for teachers, Teacher Appreciation Week, and the above mentioned coffees, game nights, and more! Bring your ideas! The work of this committee is all about building and maintaining positive relationships, and making people feel welcomed and appreciated. These events are especially fun to plan with the help of a few good friends, so talk to some of your favorite fellow parents, and ask them to join with you! If you are interested in helping in these efforts, please reach out to email@example.com.
