Group Volunteering now on Sign-Up Genius

As we have undertaken the responsibility for one of our members’ favorite aspects of WITAN – volunteering together – we are working to streamline the sign-up and reminder process.

Therefore, we have started a ‘pilot program’ to utilize Sign-Up Genius to send you emails for available volunteer opportunities and allow you to sign up directly through that email. Using Sign-Up Genius will also allow you to receive reminders of your upcoming events automatically. If your schedule changes and you need to delete a sign-up, you can also do so directly in Sign-Up Genius.

We believe using Sign-Up Genius will benefit us all by streamlining the process for our volunteer events. FYI, all volunteer events are also posted to the WITAN calendar online on our website (www.witaninfo.org) and available for you to check at any time to see upcoming volunteer opportunities.

We will continue to use this email (volunteers@witaninfo.org) for any direct email communications, questions, etc. so please email us at any time and we will be back to you ASAP.

If you have any questions about using Sign-Up Genius or encounter any issues, let us know and we’ll be ready to assist.

Thank you,

Karen Sears

NEW Fundraising Opportunity
The board has approved a NEW fundraising project …
The 300 CLUB. We will be selling 300 tickets for $20 each beginning at the October Business Meeting.

Beginning in January, we will draw 5 tickets each month. 4 tickets will be worth $25 and 1 ticket will be worth $50. If you happen to be a lucky winner, your ticket will be re-entered for future drawings.
For $20 you will have 60 chances to win. If you win 1 time you have recouped the price of 1 ticket.

This would be a great Christmas gift for that person who has everything!

The proceeds of this fundraiser will go to Community Projects.

Please contact Cheryl White at 330-607-5789 with any questions.
