With the growing needs of our military families, as well as our veterans, we are always in need of volunteers at Military Missions, Inc. We are in the process of forming different teams and are looking for team leaders and team members. We are very busy year round and we often need to coordinate a lot of volunteers for events and support tasks.
We have a variety of positions available. If you are interested in helping with planning and behind the scenes leadership tasks, we would love to have you join our team. All positions are considered “volunteer” positions. While we can’t pay you monetarily, we can promise you will receive a blessing through serving along with all of us at Military Missions. If you are interested in joining or leading a team, please send an email to Diane at email@example.com or call or text Karen at 859-221-9477.
TEAM OFFICE – We are ALWAYS looking for more volunteers to help us staff the office in 2-3 hour shifts. Weekly, bi-weekly and monthly shifts are available. We also need people willing to fill in occasionally if our regulars can’t work their shift. Other duties include sorting and organizing donations, screening cards and letters, doing inventory, and various general office tasks.
TEAM OUTREACH - We need people to help us reach out and connect with our community… to get the word out about Military Missions and get others involved in supporting our programs. This could include phone calling, public speaking, media appearances, or greeting people at events. Team Outreach members might also:
- coordinate with churches, schools, businesses, clubs and organizations, etc.
- help us schedule information tables and booths at ongoing events in our community or in conjunction with local businesses.
- be a part of our Operation Drop Box and help us get donation boxes placed throughout the community.
TEAM MONEY – Up to this point, Military Missions has relied on the donations given by individuals and small groups. With the sluggish economy, giving is down. We are looking for someone who has experience with fundraising and seeking available grants. We hope to broaden our ability to bring in donations so that we can continue to serve our military, veterans, and their families.
TEAM EVENT – We are looking for volunteers who are interested in planning and coordinating events. We have a number of special events during the year and each one takes quite a bit of behind the scene planning. We are looking for someone who would be interested in leading the team or volunteering to be a member of the planning project. Other duties could include:
- Recruiting volunteers
- Creating schedules
- Training volunteers for specific events
- Supervising small group assemblies
TEAM TECH – Have you been called a “geek” or a “nerd” lately? If so, you might enjoy being on Team Tech! We are looking for volunteers who are interested in spending time on their computers helping us to reach the online community. We actively participate in social networks and blogging and need people who can help maintain these sites and share our information. Other duties for Team Teach members could include:
- Writing (Blogs, newsletters, etc.)
- Graphic design
- Computer Support
- Posting to online calendars and bulletin boards
- Photographing events
TEAM OPSEND – OPERATION S.E.N.D. CHRISTMAS is our largest annual project that spans the months of September through December. Hundreds of volunteers are involved locally and nationally. Several events are planned in the Central Kentucky community as well as a donation drive for care package items, monetary donations for postage costs and personal cards and letters written to the troops. To find out how you can get involved, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
TEAM FACILITY – Sometimes our office needs a little TLC. We are looking for people that have general construction and repair skills… carpentry, heating/air, electricity, plumbing, etc. If you consider yourself a handyman, we would love to have you join this team. We also need a decorating touch from time to time just to spiffy the place up a bit.
TEAM VETERAN – As more and more troops return home, the needs of our veterans continue to grow daily. Members of Team Veteran focus on identifying those needs, developing programs/events that will be beneficial, and implementing the activities.
Military Missions, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity. You can earn community service hours by volunteering to help at our events. We appreciate your help and look forward to working together to support and encourage our military families and veterans in our community.
