Can you put the fun in fundraising? Hospice of Anchorage needs your help
September 1, 2017
Hospice of Anchorage is in search of some dedicated volunteers. Most positions that we usually recruit for have been filled and we are very thankful for this wonderful community that we live in. Looking forward, we are creating a team of about five dedicated volunteers that are interested in fundraising and event planning.
Current events that we would have volunteers work on would include; Heroes of Healthcare, Remembering the Light, and the Remembrance Tree.
Heroes of Healthcare is our annual fundraiser/auction in April that requires phone calls to the community asking for auction item donations, office work to prepare for the event and volunteers helping at the event.
Remembering the Light is in October and is a community memorial event that requires some donation requests prior to the event, event coordination and volunteers on site at the event.
The Remembrance Tree is a tree that goes up at the 5th Avenue Mall and the Dimond Center Mall in Anchorage and for any donation a person can have an ornament placed on the tree in memory of someone that has died. This event requires a lot of manpower to fill all the volunteer spots needed and this takes outreach ahead of time.
In addition, it would be our hope that this group of volunteers would be creative and open to new ideas for Hospice of Anchorage for events and fundraising. An ideal volunteer for this position would have a lot of time available, they would be organized and self-motivated. This group would work closely with the Board of Directors and the Executive Director.
If you are interested in this opportunity please feel free to contact the Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 561-5322 and we will set up a time to chat. Look forward to hearing from you.
