Welcome to the SMM Volunteer Connection!
An important part of “Celebrating and Sharing God’s Love” is sharing our talents and time with others, but finding an organization with volunteer needs that are a good fit for you can be challenging. The SMM Volunteer Connection lets you connect with fellow parishioners who already volunteer for an organization in which you’re interested. You get a firsthand view of what it’s like to volunteer there and feedback on the types of volunteer roles available. Plus, you can form connections with parishioners with similar interests.
Using the SMM Volunteer Connection is easy. Click on the email address next to the organization’s name below, enter whatever text you’d like, and hit “send.” Your email goes to SMM parishioners who currently volunteer for that organization (i.e., SMM Volunteer Connection responders). They reply to your email and provide the info you’d like in whatever manner suits best – email, phone call, or a face-to-face conversation. Next thing you know, you’ll be volunteering in a role that really fits.
Do you already volunteer for an organization? Great! Please consider becoming a SMM Volunteer Connection responder. As a responder you will provide information on your organization(s) (e.g., your experience, organization goals, types of volunteer opportunities available, etc.) to SMM parishioners who’d like to find out whether volunteering for your organization(s) is a good fit for them. Your only commitment is to be responsive to occasional email inquiries from fellow SMM parishioners. To sign up, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org giving the name of your organization(s) and a description of how you currently volunteer your time and talents. Note that, while many of the organizations in the SMM Volunteer Connection are charitable in nature and focused on human needs, others are simply organizations for which parishioners are volunteering. The only specific exclusion is political organizations.
