Parkland Village does not currently have formalized membership. We intend to do so later this year when it seems safe in terms of pandemic conditions for us to provide the full array of services that has been our goal. At that time, we will train volunteers to provide the following services:
However, we are now gearing up to provide several kinds of safe volunteer services while the pandemic is still in force but abating in terms of the risk to residents who have beem vaccinated. Membership will not be required to receive those services prior to the time we begin our full array of services. We have a number of people who have offered to provide these services, and we will provide orientation for those volunteers shortly. All volunteers will be screened by Sterling Volunteers. The services we will be offering are:
We encourage residents of Parkland Hills and Southeast Heights neighborhoods to contact us and indicate their interest as potential members and/or potential volunteers. If you provide us with your contact information (email@example.com), we will send you updates, newsletters, and invitations to online events. We would love to have your name, e-mail address (if you have one), address, and phone number, or any of that contact information that you feel comfortable sharing with us. If you wish, you could also let us know what services you anticipate being able to provide. We anticipate that there will be people who both need services and can offer services.
In addition, we encourage people to volunteer now, not just to work providing services directly to residents, but also to help us do the organizing work we need to do to move us closer to being able to provide those services. We could use help with outreach and recruiting, website development/maintenance, fundraising, accounting and online event programming. Perhaps you have other ideas we haven't thought of.
