I am so excited that you are reading this blog post and considering becoming a volunteer for Deployed Love. There are many ways that you can get involved including: being a board member, a base co-coordinator or events director, photographer, and volunteer. Since Deployed Love continues to grow more and more each year, we are always looking for new personalities and faces to add to our dedicated team.
To become a volunteer for one of our events, not much is required, other than putting in an application, having a passion for the cause, and a heart for service. You also would typically need to attend one of the informational meetings that is held in preparation for the event.
What a typical day as a volunteer looks like can vary based on the event. You could be doing one of several things: sign-ins, being a “runner” helping families find their way to and from photographers, taking donations and sharing information about the raffle and Deployed Love as a whole, helping with the Kid Zone, baking cookies and other special treats for the families, and we have even had Santa show up at our events from time to time.
No matter the task you are given the day of, it is always a fun day and one to remember! There is nothing better than helping these families and being supportive of them during the deployment of their family member. I hope you consider signing up for any of the available positions in your area and we look forward to meeting you at one of our events.
