Volunteers Welcome

Dear Community, I am excited to be launching a new initiative that was approved by the Chadeish Yameinu Board at the June meeting. Based on the feedback from members at the membership meetings last year, the board agrees that increased volunteerism is a crucial element of Chadeish Yameinu's sustainability. We are asking all members to volunteer a minimum of 10 hours over the course of the year. This mitzvah will enable Chadeish Yameinu to offer diverse programming, do outreach to the community, and raise much needed funds. We are committed to helping people find volunteer opportunities that match their interest and skills. The link below will take you to a form for signing up, and attach

Our Community Needs You!

The CY Board is reaching out into the community and asking for your help. CY has a lot of facets, and our board needs to reflect that. We could use more representation from families with young children. There is a role for someone who has the energy to move our community forward in areas of social justice projects. Are you an experienced grant writer? We need you! Many of our board members wear several hats, and could use the support of the larger community who have and are willing to contribute their time. If interested, please contact Alisun Thompson. #blog
