Answer Phones at WBUR's December Fundraiser
December 13th & 14th | Multiple Shifts
 
WBUR serves and engages the local community as a source of news and information, providing insight and cultural context that unites a diverse, complex and changing world.
  We're looking for volunteers to help answer the pledge phones and package thank you gifts. Taking pledge calls is fun: there's no outbound calling, just facilitating pledges from people who already want to give! At each shift we'll provide food for volunteers, have books to browse, and offer tours of the station for those who are interested.

Tuesday, December 12th | 6:45 PM - 7:45 PM
 
 
 
 

In a city like Boston, a place of boundless variety and opportunity, most of us call a few city blocks our neighborhood; our home. Our neighborhood isn’t just where we live and work; it’s where we have the greatest opportunity to make a lasting impact. Neighborhood New Volunteer Orientations will serve to connect local volunteers with the communities in which they will be serving. Join us for an New Volunteer Orientation held at Boston Living Center, conveniently located a few blocks from Back Bay Station. This orientation will provide a space for volunteers to meet Boston Cares staff and each other, learn how to navigate our website, how to sign up for projects, and discover the many volunteer opportunities in Back Bay that we partner with.
