Jump Into the Volunteer Pool NOW! It's time for the Spring Membership Drive

Ah, the birds are migrating, the flowers are budding, and spring is getting springy,  must be time for the KBOO Spring Membership Drive!  The Drive runs on air from Saturday, March 22nd through Friday, April 11th; and we need to fill over 900 volunteer shifts.  This is a great time to get involved in your community radio station!

KBOO’s existence depends on membership drives as more than 80% of our funding comes from our listeners--this is, in part,  what allows KBOO to be so independent and unique.  It is crucial that all active volunteers schedule themselves to help support the drive-- with shifts available seven days a week, generally spanning the hours of 6 AM to 11 PM, there are shifts to fit anyone’s schedule! If you aren't an active volunteer at this time, no worries-- contact me to find out how to get involved.

The drive is very high energy time to volunteer at KBOO, with volunteers working closely together in teams to raise money for the station.  It is really fun to schedule a shift during a time that you listen, as then you can meet the volunteers that you hear on the radio and talk with others that share your interests. We will need volunteers for many roles: answering phones & assisting our listeners to become members; getting on mic and talking with the program host to encourage listeners to join KBOO; running errands to pick up food donations (we have many restaurants that donate food to keep volunteers happy!); phoning for food donations prior to the drive; data entry / filing support work, and a few other things to boot.

Interested?  Contact me for all of the details to get involved!  Call me at 503-231-8032 ext. 213, or volunteer@kboo.org. You'll be glad you did, and so will we!!!
