Volunteers needed to help answer membership drive phones, and more!
Have you been wanting to get more involved with KBOO? This is your time! KBOO’s Fall Membership Drive begins Thursday, October 1st, through Saturday, October 17th.
KBOO’s existence depends on membership drives as more than 80% of our funding comes from our listeners--this is, in part, what allows KBOO to be so independent and unique. We ask that all volunteers at KBOO help with the drive, as we have more than 600 shifts to fill! With shifts available seven days a week, generally spanning the hours of 6 AM to 11 PM, there are shifts to fit anyone’s schedule!
The drive is very high energy, and volunteers work very closely together in teams to raise money for the station— it can be really fun to schedule a shift during a time that you listen, you can meet the volunteers that you hear on the radio and talk with others that share your interests. If you haven’t volunteered before, try answering phones & assisting our listeners to become members—it’s a great way to jump on in. There are other opportunities related to the drive, so contact me for more information.
Interested? My email address is volunteer[at]kboo[dot]org or you can phone me at 503-231-8032 ext. 213, I’ll be happy to hear from you.Also, a sincere thanks to the volunteers who helped out during the Book & Record Sale Fundraiser. We had a great time meeting community members and raising about $3,000 for KBOO. And a big thanks to Don at DTC Grip and Electric, for allowing KBOO to store donated materials.
