Call for committee volunteers!

Greetings, all.

We wanted to let you know about a great opportunity to do even more for people in need through Simple Needs GA. Over the next few months, we will be forming several new volunteer committees. If you’re interested, please consider joining one! Here’s a more in-depth look at what we have in mind…

  • FUNDRAISING
    Volunteer members of our fundraising committee will work to build strong relationships with current and potential funders, including foundations, corporate sponsors, churches, service organizations and individuals. By generating new ideas and discovering new opportunities that can help us meet or exceed our revenue goals, members of the fundraising committee will make a vital contribution to SNGA.
  • _SCD6888EVENTS (AND RELATED SUBCOMMITTEES)
    SNGA is planning a major fundraising event at The Strand Theatre in downtown Marietta. Our events committee needs volunteers to serve on subcommittees geared toward making our Strand and other events the best they can be. Activities will include selling sponsorships, managing volunteers, getting the word out and more.
  • MY BIRTHDAY MATTERS (MBM)
    Members of this committee will help SNGA perform a wonderful service—bringing brand-new toys, school supplies, new underwear and other useful items to homeless schoolchildren and those living in local shelters who are celebrating their birthdays. Members will organize wish-list toy drives, shop for presents, research MBM needs, lead volunteers on volunteer days, deliver the gifts to the children and much more.
  • SHOE THEM LOVE
    This program helps disadvantaged schoolchildren get the uplifting experience of having brand-new shoes of their own. Members of this committee will work to increase donations of $25 gift cards for the purchase of new shoes. They will also work to grow the program and support its operations, in part by collaborating with school counselors and the committee chair.
  • COMFORT BAGS FOR PEOPLE IN NEED
    SNGA has distributed thousands of duffel bags packed with full-sized toiletries to people checking into local emergency shelters. This committee will plan our drives, research ways to get in-kind donations and work to expand the number of people reached by this valuable program.
  • PUBLIC RELATIONS/COMMUNITY OUTREACH
    Join us to help write and distribute press releases, email blasts and blog posts and keep our social media sites up-to-date and vibrant. Volunteers with experience in journalism, public relations, graphic design and SEO are preferred, but anyone with strong communications skills is welcome to apply.

The schedules and required time commitments for all of the above committees and subcommittees will vary; members will need to be able to regularly attend meetings, either face-to-face or via conference calls. For more information, contact us at info@simpleneedsga.org. You can also reach us at Facebook.com/simpleneedsga and @simpleneedsga on Twitter.

Thanks for your support of people in need!
