Om Thrive Volunteer Meeting

Thank you to all who expressed interest in Volunteering with Om Thrive! This meeting will be the first of the Blazer season to get our volunteer groups for the Moda Center up and running. 

This is an annual opportunity that kicks off with the Blazer season in October. New nonprofit participants in this program are encouraged to recruit at least 25 volunteers to rotate shifts throughout the season. Each event only needs 8 – 10 volunteers so you can pick what dates you are available for. Each event shift is about 4 hours in duration. 

Event lists are released 1 month in advance. I should be getting an event schedule for October later this week. FYI - There is NO PRESSURE for us to begin right away. We can start volunteer groups in November or December if that works better for our groups. My goal is to have a solid group of rotating volunteers by January 2019. 

We will discuss requirements and review the event schedule for the month of October to choose which events will work best for the groups.

Please bring anyone with you that is interested even if they can't commit to this year. I plan on doing this for multiple years so the more the better!

Contact Day Bibb for more information at 352-322-9019 or day@omthrive.org. Thank you!
