Chatham-Kent needs you. R.O.C.K. needs you. We're doing some headhunting for some new volunteers. Got some time/energy to do some good in our community? Look no further.
Want a better idea of what is involved? Can do...
We're looking for some kitchen help. Every Monday and Friday, between the hours of 7:30-10:30 (approx) we meet at the United Way to make lunches. Right now we are creating around 270 bagged lunches (sandwiches and snacks) that are delivered the next day. Many hands make light work...and all that!
We're looking for some outreach help. Every Tuesday and Saturday we have an amazing group who go out in the community and deliver these lunches. They also deliver hygiene supplies, harm reduction, clothing, and do a bit of first aid. This is how we reach our friends, build a relationship, and ultimately hope to build some bridges to get them off the streets and into a home.
We need someone to take a lead on fundraising for us. We're looking for that one special person (or two, or three) who loves to ask people for money (donations, food, clothing, etc) to help support ROCK as we continue to grow and GROW! If you're that special person, please take a minute and consider coming aboard, and help keep us in those $$'s.
Anyone have any experiencing dealing with housing and social services? We would like to find one amazing person who would be willing to act as a liaison between our friends and Employment and Social Services. There is a growing need within our community of people who need assistance navigating the in's and out's of the government programs. If you're that special person who can do that, reach out!
Last, but not least, we are looking for someone to join our Board of Directors, as a trustee. This entails being available at least once monthly for board meetings (more if necessary), assisting in making decisions as a group for the best practices of ROCK, and having an active interest in the future of R.O.C.K. Missions.
If you have any interest in joining our team - cause we ROCK! - please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on our facebook page. Even as little as a few hours a month can make all the difference in the world to someone.
As always, ROCK family/friends, we appreciate each and every one of you. It takes a community to care for each other, and we're blessed to have that here in Chatham-Kent!
