The Union Gospel Mission is looking for volunteers to help them out in a week-long Thank-a-Thon.

"Thank You" From the UGM - My Blogathon Cause

At Union Gospel Mission, we love our donors — thanks to them, we can make a difference in Metro Vancouver. We want to pour some serious time and effort into making phone calls to say “thank you” for the generosity of the people that keep UGM helping people.

But we need YOUR help! If you’ve got a spare hour or two on an evening or a weekend in the coming weeks, would you help us make some phone calls? You’ll be provided with a script, some delicious food to keep you satiated, and your very own desk phone (with real buttons!)

From January 19th until the 30th they will be placing 10,000 calls to thank supporters (no donations will be solicited). As this is quite the task they are looking for volunteers (about 15 a night) to work shifts Monday to Friday, 5:00pm to 8:00pm or 6:00pm until 9:00pm. They also have a Saturday shift, 10:00am to 4:00pm. Training will be provided along with scripts.

If you’re interested in volunteering, you can contact Amy Billingsley (abillingsley [at] ugm.ca] or call (604) 215-5440 ext 343.

Union Gospel Mission is a non-profit urban relief organization serving Metro Vancouver and the City of Mission, providing hope for the hungry, hurting and homeless since 1940.
