Support Our Volunteers

Date: April 1, 2017

A 3-5 hour commitment. To highlight the work and efforts of all our active folks who volunteer and serve on committees, we want to create a bulletin board to recognize our volunteers. Each committee will have the names and possibly photos of its members posted, and then each week of the program year, we will highlight one committee and invite congregants to reach out to folks on that team and thank them for their efforts. We will have note cards available for thank yous and will announce the "Spotlight On" each committee in the OOS and other outlets. We are hoping that this will increase interest in and accessibility to volunteering at FUUFHC, as well as demonstrate our gratitude to those who already do. The volunteer(s) requested for this project will help with designing and erecting the bulletin board initially. The ongoing work will be done by staff and/or volunteers as available. Once you sign up, the DRE will contact you with additional details. (Please sign up with your first name and first initial of last name.)
