VOLUNTEER

IMMEDIATE NEEDS AND VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES!

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 volunteer@military-missions.org or call Karen at 859-221-9477.

Office Management Team – We are ALWAYS looking for more volunteers to help us run the office in 2-3 hour shifts.  Weekly and bi-weekly shifts are available.  We also need people willing to fill in occasionally if our regulars can’t work their shift.

Community Outreach Team - help us to reach out and connect with our community.  We need to get the word out about Military Missions and get others involved in supporting our programs.  We need a liaison who is willing to work with specific target areas to keep people informed and get them involved. Team members are being recruited to:

  • 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 Drop Box Team and help us get donation boxes placed throughout the community.

Grants/Fundraising Team – 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.  Contact Karen at  webmaster@military-missions.org.

Events Team – We are looking for volunteers who are interested in planning special events.  We have a number of events during the year and are looking for someone who would be interested in leading the team or volunteering to be a member of this planning project.

Communications/Social Media Team – 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.  We are looking for people who can help us to maintain these sites and share our information. We are also looking for someone to help us post event information and volunteer opportunities in online bulletin board forums.  If you are a writer, we ask that you consider joining our blog team. Contact Karen at webmaster@military-missions.org

OPERATION S.E.N.D CHRISTMAS Planning Team – OPERATION S.E.N.D. CHRISTMAS is a project that spans the months of September through December. 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, contact Linda at  info@military-missions.org

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.
