Volunteer opportunity posted by: Rebuilding Together Long Beach
Posted on: January 24, 2013
Volunteers are the Rebuilding Together Long Beach's lifeblood. RTLB depends on its volunteers, who represent a wide range of skills, experience, and industries. By lending an extra set of hands on a workday, each volunteer provides a unique contribution. And the effort is immensely rewarding (read volunteer testimonials).
There are many ways you can contribute to rebuilding lives in the greater Long Beach area. So if you're ready to get started, it's easy.
We need all levels of help: Skilled trades, general handiwork, and event logistics. Licensed trades can assist with electrical, plumbing, roofing, masonry, advanced carpentry. If you are handy, you can replace windows, repair doors, paint, and landscape. Event logistics volunteers assist with sign-in, monitoring supplies, and organizing refreshments.
These committees keep all parts of RTLB up and running year round: Site Selection, Fundraising and Grant writing, Hospitality, Construction and House (project) Captains, Public Relations, Administration, and Volunteers, .
Generally, the commitment involves attendance at the monthly Board of Directors meeting (third Tuesday of the month) and meetings scheduled by the Committee Chair. We welcome all types and levels of involvement. You simply decide what works best for you.
