Already a CRC Volunteer?

CRC has now kicked off its 5th year in action.  They say 12.7 million Canadians give nearly 2 billion hours per year volunteering.  No surprise to we CRC’ers!  We applaud each other!  We are the heart, soul and reason for success.  You are sincerely appreciated!

New to CRC Volunteering?

Welcome and thanks for exploring!  Please add your name to one or more jobs or tell us what else you hope to do.  The need is urgent for a longer list of volunteers per job.  More talent = more back-up = more flexibility for you and all of us.

Kathie and Lee answer questions at an event.

NOTE:  Certain jobs can be done in pairs or small groups with your friends and family. So let us know if this makes it easier for you to volunteer. As well, we appreciate you referring your friends and family to volunteer, as often as possible.

Below are recurring and evolving opportunities.

Ways You Can Help

Just do it! No need to pre-arrange:
♥ Follow and retweet @CRC Rockwood
♥ Follow, like and share our Facebook page.
♥ Be a roaming photographer! Email your photos of volunteers and other Hidden Quarry-related scenes to crc@crcrockwood.org.

A. Drivers, Exercise Fans and more…

  1. Transport 3D Model (3’x5′) to/fro Everton.  Note covered (from rain!) vehicle space requirement.
  2. Transport tent, tables and marketing materials.
  3. Help set-up and pack-up when possible.
  4. Walk event posters to retail stores, Rockwood/Acton.
  5. Manually address infrequent but special mailings for Canada Post delivery.  Occasional need for internet address search.  Work from the comfort of your home, day or evening.

The above five are essential jobs mostly linked to a variety of CRC public appearances.  When we contact you with specific dates and details, you’ll decide if you’re available.

B. Co-Host CRC’s Information Table/Booth  

Thanks to Lars, teacher and CRC member, students from Brampton earned volunteer credits prepping and serving food at the Nylons concert. A win for the CRC.

♥ Be yourself.  Talk about what matters to you.
♥ Join CRC Directors and others to host a table and the 3D Model at one or more events and public markets.
♥ Chat with the community as they stop-by.  Listen to viewpoints, sign up new supporters, receive donations and new volunteer contacts.
♥ Average a 2-3 hour shift, per event.
♥ Help set-up or pack up the Information Table/Booth.
♥ Orientation is provided.  Co-Hosts stick together and help each other.
♥ See schedule below.

C. Facebook Partner – Partner with CRC’s Facebook Captain to help write content and act as back-up support.  Share your strong writing skills, creativity and Facebook expertise.  Your collaborative style is CRC’s style too.  Time requirements are occasional through the year.

D. Project Leaders/Captains – Sometimes we overload ourselves to get the job done.  CRC wants to ease the load with a longer list of potential volunteers willing to run with the baton.  For example, are you willing to organize and implement at least one Information Booth?  Or would you consider leading or co-leading even one special event?  You would never be solo on a project because team and collaboration define the CRC.  Can we persuade you to share your proven strengths in leadership?  Contact us.
