How do I find out about (and sign up for) upcoming projects and events?
The best way to keep informed is to check our events page regularly and to subscribe to our e-mail newsletter by sending a blank email to: email@example.com. Once you sign up to receive our free email newsletter, you'll be kept up to date with all upcoming events and breaking news. We email it about twice a month, so don't worry about getting bombarded with spam.
How do I join Single Volunteers? Jump in anywhere?
The easiest thing to do is to offer to help at one of our various volunteer opportunities. All events have an Event Coordinator listed and all you need to do is to let that person know that you'd like to help. That's it, that's all there is to it. And we'd be grateful for your assistance. The Event Coordinator (we call them POC - Point of Contact) will be in charge of getting you the details as to when and where to meet and will be in charge of introducing you to the other members of the group that are helping on that project. If you'd like to attend one of our monthly meetings to meet some of the other members, you are always welcome to come on in. Meetings are always open and friendly. We think you'll like the group enough that you'll keep coming back.
Are there any meetings?
Visitors and members are always invited to attend our monthly meetings, usually held the Third Saturday of every month. The purpose of these meetings is to allow all of the members to meet each other and to discuss future projects and plans ( If you've got some ideas, bring them on in!) . Meetings are at various locations; different each month. Please check the EVETNTS page for current location. Note: Although we'd love to have you come to any of our meetings, it is not a pre-requisite for membership. Meetings are always open to any and all interested people. Feel free to come in and meet some friendly people.
For additional information, contact us at: What is Single Volunteers?
Single Volunteers is a social organization for singles that provides a relaxed environment in which to meet others while supporting various charitable community groups through volunteering. Pretty simple, huh? Single Volunteers, started January 1997, is non-sectarian and concentrates mainly on helping various non-profit community organizations. It's a great way to meet people and make new friends.
What do I have to do?
This group is very flexible; we want you to fit events and meetings into your schedule. Some people attend meetings, some donate their time, some donate when we collect items for non-profits, some only do events and we never see them at a meeting. No one way is correct. Any one, or all, of these things work for us. Over the years we have met some great friends; it's nice to catch up with them at a meeting or another event.
What are the membership requirements?
You must be 21 years of age or older. You must be single (but you already figured that out, right?). If you have a wedding ring on your finger, we'd be more than happy to help you find another group that would appreciate your assistance. No minimum attendance requirements, no long term commitments, no agreements to sign, nothing. We won't make you buy anything ( Well, that’s only partially true. This rule is suspended during our bake sale). We're banking on the fact that you'll like us enough to want to keep coming back. We're a very easy group of people to get involved with and we're always going to be that way.
What does it cost to join Single Volunteers? Nothing.
Single Volunteers membership is free. No dues. Zip. Nada.
What about leader positions in Single Volunteers?
Leadership positions are always available and your participation is encouraged and welcome. If you'd like to assist as an Event Coordinator, we'd especially like to hear from you. If you want to help, we'll find a place for you.
Jump right in - everyone is welcome to signup for any event.
Do you have a great idea for an event? Do you know of a non-profit organization that could use our help for their event? Or perhaps you have a favorite restaurant - invite us to come along. Put your event on our calendar! Contact an Officer for assistance; we'll walk you through the very simple process.
