L.A. Works makes volunteering easy and accessible for all Angelenos to make a significant impact in their community!
With the overwhelming success of our 1st Annual Service Crawl in November 2011, we’ve decided to bring it back for a second run in the Summer of 2012! We’re extremely excited to be offering once again such a unique, fun-filled volunteer experience in Los Angeles that not only engages people in the importance of service, but also meets pressing issues facing our community.
Here is a snapshot of what the 2011 Crawl was like:
This exciting and unique form of service is an opportunity for your friends, family and colleagues to get together and support the LA nonprofit community in just a few hours time. Experience a cross-section of nonprofits as your team “crawls” from site to site solving clues, completing tasks, and competing for some great prizes! Each team will be asked to raise funds to participate (similar to a walk-a-thon-type experience).
As you can imagine, such an event doesn’t happen by itself so we’re looking for enthusiastic and committed individuals to be part of this year’s Service Crawl Committee. There are many ways — big, medium or small to get involved.
Below is a list of some of the projects you might see yourself working on:
- Securing sponsorships
- Identifying agencies and planning the service projects
- Recruiting volunteers
- Developing fundraising and marketing campaigns
- General event planning and administration
- Day-of logistics and operations
If you’re interested in finding out more about getting involved with the Committee, please sign up for our first discussion meeting on: Thursday, April 19 from 6:30-8:30pm
If you have any questions or comments, don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 323-224-6510. I hope you can join us!
