THE Volunteers of Southern Maine and Beyond VOS-ME
They said it was impossible. They said it couldn't be done. Create a way to organize and empower caring people to help fellow Mainers, events within our local community with additional opportuntitiesin Boston and N.H. And do it in a no-hassle, no commitment way where folks can easily choose where and how they want to help? Simply a bunch of good-natured and hardworking people wanting to make our little corner of the world a better place. Why? Because we believe in better. With nothing more than word-of-mouth reputation, Meetup.com as a springboard, and a knack for gathering some of likeminded people around, in this case for the good of the community. While we are so incredibly grateful for all the volunteers who are already part of our community, there are still countless people in our neighborhood who find themselves in need. That's why we need you. All you need is a caring heart and a willingness to share a little bit of your valuable time. Join us and spend an evening in a local soup kitchen; help tutor a single, local mom so she can earn her GED; rebuild your neighborhood playground so kids can play safely; kayak and do a bird count, to better our environment; build a home for a local family; spend time with the elderly. The variety is endless and refreshing. You choose where and when. There will be a convenient volunteer celebration for you. Don't miss this easy opportunity to build community. The goal is to build a well-earned reputation for having hard working and dependable folks, and to have a pretty good time doing so. Beyond having fun while helping others, we also celebrate a variety of social events here we simply spend a little time relaxing and getting to know each other. Volunteer enough and you will make some meaningful and lasting friendships with some truly great people. I've build a growing and meaningful community. Please know that since day one, we have been an open and inclusive meet-up, where every volunteer- regardless of superficial differences is valued, respected and needed. Not only can you choose where and when you would like to volunteer, but also you are encouraged to bring new ideas and new volunteer opportunities to our attention. I you ever have questions; feel free to email any of the organizers. We are here for you.
