Wednesday night we are hosting a Volunteer Recruitment Meeting. This meeting will be the cornerstone of recruiting volunteers to help with our mission at DMS. People always have questions about this though. So we decided to do a Q&A about what it means to volunteer with DMS.
What does a volunteer do?
Volunteers help us to attain our goals and objectives. Main Street is always looking for volunteers, no matter how big or small the contribution. If you are able to make phone calls to remind people about meetings or check on information, there’s a spot for you. If you are not able to make regular meetings, but want to be involved in Main Street, perhaps you have a few days a year to assist with events.
It is satisfying to do useful work that benefits one’s town . Volunteering offers many benefits and opportunities for the people who participate. People volunteer for a wide variety of reasons, especially wanting to help others. Think of volunteering as an exchange. Today you may be the person with the ability to help but tomorrow you may be the recipient of someone else’s volunteer effort.
