Volunteer Help Wanted
FUNDRAISER - The Whitecaps raise a significant amount of money annually from individuals and businesses who support the club. We'd love an experienced fundraiser - just someone who's done it for another nonprofit, not necessarily a professional - to manage this offseason responsibility. It involves sending letters to past and prospective supporters; maintaining a list of donors for publication in the yearbook; and getting each a thank-you. On the business side, the volunteer would record donations from area businesses, and coordinate with our corporate sales staff.if you have the inclination, contact Roger Normand at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SOUVENIR SALES - The Whitecaps need clerks in our Souvenir Booth. If you can give us 4 hours one day a week for eight weeks, we'll give you a 10% discount on all the merchandise we sell. People skills and neatness count, as we support the team with our souvenir profits. The booth is open at 4 p.m., and closes when the crowd leaves, usually around 8. Dress is casual. We play 3-4 home games a week, and could put three or four people to work to cover the season. Interested? Contact Roger Normand at email@example.com.
WELCOME WAGON - Drive the Whitecaps' six-seat golf cart from 4:30 to 6 p.m., then catch the rest of the game. You'll monitor our parking lot at Stony Brook Field, driving families and anyone needing assistance from their car to the gate. You're our rolling Information Booth (yes, there are bleachers - no, we don't allow beer and wine), and keep our staff informed of potential overcrowding at big games. We'd like adult volunteers to commit to 5-6 games each, and we'd love one to be our Welcome Coordinator, to make sure someone's behind the wheel for every game. Contact game day coordinator Mike Gradone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
POSTGAME SUPPORT - There's lots to do once the crowd goes home. We feed the team a postgame meal, take down our advertisers' banners, empty the trash and recyclables, and prep the perimeter of the field for the next game. If you're an adult who can give us 4-6 evenings from 7 p.m. until we're cleaned up (usually by 8:30), contact game day coordinator Mike Gradone at email@example.com.
