Facilities Volunteer Recruitment
Calling handy parishioners, facility or property managers, or experienced contractors… your parish needs your help! We are seeking to establish a volunteer Building Committee. First Step: Begin by investigating our premises, becoming familiar with the inside and outside of our properties. The Team will be charged with creating a 10-year Capital Improvement Plan, establishing a Safety Plan, assist with collecting bids/procurement process, help facilitate and oversee facility projects, create a list of needs both reoccurring and one-time projects, create a call list for willing volunteers who would be able to offer us specialized skills for one-time projects and ongoing chores. Come volunteer with a like-minded team to ensure the health and wellness of our facilities. They are aging and need both minor adjustments and a few major overhauls.
Volunteers with specialized skills or a willingness to step up in other ways are needed. No meetings, we promise! Please let us know if you would be willing to be added to our call list for specialized volunteer projects, both one-time projects and some ongoing things. We are looking for an economical way to get some facility work done through parishioners and friends wishing to volunteer. Do you have skills in carpentry, cleaning, landscaping, electronics, or technical repairs? Do you have HVAC, electrical, plumbing, or other trade licenses and would you be willing to pitch in on occasion to help your parish? Some examples would be to adopt a garden. Care for a garden or two on either of our premises. You would weed, fertilize, water, whatever it takes to maintain and beautify “your” area. Perhaps cleaning the church pews with a partner once or twice a month is more up your alley? If you have tools, a truck, are willing to assist in other projects, please reach out. We not only need a Building Committee for our parish but would like to create a call list for those who might be on call for needed projects. No commitment too small!
If you are willing to join our newly established Building Committee and/or join our volunteer call list for specific types of tasks, please fill out the Facility Volunteer Application Form or contact
