Volunteer

“Volunteering is a source of joy for me, as it allows me to assist others, bringing a deep sense of fulfillment. With years of experience both working with and as a volunteer, I’ve gained a nuanced understanding to the intricacies involved. Beyond the inherent rewards, volunteering offers the opportunity to make new friends, boost self-esteem, acquire new professional skills, contribute to community strength, and foster a profound sense of accomplishment.”  Kris Call

Volunteers are not paid but are folks who want to help where help is needed.  ARC Rutland Area needs your help.   Volunteering is also a way to give back to your community in ways that doesn’t cost money, but gives a whole lot of pleasure and satisfaction in work well done and appreciated!  Please consider volunteering at ARC!

If you have skills with spreadsheets and databases and can spend some regular time helping out at ARC, we need you!  Please call and talk to Diane at 802-775-1370 or send an email at [email protected]

If you have enthusiasm, and your own transportation and want to help out with the set up for the dances – setting up and decorating tables, etc.,  Please call and talk to Diane at 802-775-1370 or send an email at [email protected].

Scanning and filing are skills that we need here at ARC and on a regular basis.  If you have these skill sets and are available once a week, please call and talk to Diane at 802-775-1370 or send an email at [email protected].

In March, we need a volunteer from each of our towns: Rutland City, Rutland Town, West Rutland, Clarendon, Wallingford, Tinmouth, Mendon, Killington, Ludlow, Middletown Springs, Fair Haven, Castleton, Poultney, Pittsford, Proctor, Pawlet and Benson to monitor the votes in their towns to let us know if we were successful in passing the appropriations.  Please call and talk to Diane at 802-775-1370 or send an email at [email protected].

The Volunteers who monitor the town votes can also be Petition Project Leaders.  In September, we need folks to get signatures of registered voters of specific towns that require a new petition. This is very important work and without the petitions, we cannot always get the funds we ask for.  Because we get the majority of our income from towns and cities in Rutland county, it is critical that we ensure our petitions are submitted to the town clerks timely and with enough signatures to make the ballots for voting.  Please consider this very worthy position as a volunteer and call and talk to Diane at 802-775-1370 or send an email at [email protected].

Finally, if you have an idea about a fund raiser, we want to hear it!  Please call and talk to Diane at 802-775-1370 or send an email at [email protected].
