Message to charitable organizations:
Please DO NOT join this group unless you plan to volunteer for various events yourself.
This group is NOT for organizations to advertise and recruit, it is for the volunteers.
I can provide other ways to bring attention to your organization though:
*sponsoring the group throughwww.meetup.com - specifying our particular group
*inviting us to participate in a planned event as volunteers
*inviting us to attend a planned event
*providing us with opportunities for group events we can do for your organizations
*sending a list of volunteer needs that I can forward to the members on your behalf
*assisting the Organizers with creating a packet that can be scanned and posted on the group site that represents and introduces our members to your organization in a pressure free way (We would meet you in person to work this through).
Please set these up through the Organizers, through e-mail and/or in meeting with them in person....except for projects members create and wish to organize and lead on their own then they will get in touch with you andyou would be working directly with them.
