Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties Seeking Volunteer Community Representatives

A training session is planned for Aug. 3

Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties has a shortage of Santa Barbara County volunteers.

A training will be held Aug. 3 for volunteer community representatives at various Santa Barbara County locations.

Community representatives help share the foundation’s mission with different constituencies. Volunteers in this position staff information tables at community events, accept checks on behalf of Make-A-Wish, talk to people one on one about the Make-A-Wish Foundation, speak briefly to larger groups when accepting checks and provide support with media relations and public relations activities for the chapter.

Community representatives with the interest and ability may also make five- to 15-minute public presentations for the chapter.

Click here to enroll in this class. Training locations and times will be scheduled based on the needs of those who apply. Those interested should respond by this Sunday, July 29.

All volunteers must also complete a volunteer application, available by clicking here.

— Shanna Wasson Taylor is the CEO of Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
