General and Annual Event Volunteer Needs
No Kill Louisville Booths at outside events - we need help a few hours a month staffing booths at events around the Louisville area. This would require set up or break down of booths, handling small amounts of money (selling t-shirts, taking donations, etc), a clear understanding of the No Kill model and volunteers who enjoy working with the public even when they don't yet understand the No Kill model.
Gay Pride Parade - Friday, June 14, and Saturday, June 15, 2013. Volunteers needed to staff a booth, walk in the parade.
Hogs for Dogs - Volunteers needed to contact merchants for raffle items, staff booths, help with publicity and write thank you notes.
Angel Tree Program - In November and December volunteers needed for picking up supplies, sorting items, setting up trees and administrative help. In January we need help delivering the donated items to the rescues and shelters. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to help.
Furry Features distribution - distribute weekly Furry Features around town at coffee shops, libraries and area businesses; help establish an additional list to mail Furry Features to weekly; work with other volunteers to send out weekly mailing
Board of Directors' support and general administrative needs
Website, FaceBook and Twitter updates - we need help keeping our website, FB and twitter accounts up-to-date, adding calendar dates and more. This is a simple windows website and you do not have to have coding experience to help with this. Likely need 2 to 3 volunteers for this.
