Donate your time: Become a phone bank volunteer this fall

A successful public radio fundraiser depends on the help of staff, community members, listeners, volunteers and donors; and making a donation isn't the only way to support us. A donation of your time is just as important.

We're looking for phone bank volunteers during our fall fundraiser. It starts on Thursday, October 16 and ends on the following Thursday, October 23. Shifts vary in length, but most are around two hours. Can't make it for two hours? No problem. Any amount of time helps us meet our goal.

Duties include answering the phone, taking donor information and occasionally messages. You'll meet other volunteers that appreciate public radio and the work we do here at WRVO. You'll meet the staff that bring you radio each and every day. Watch the on-air staff in action -- there's a window between the phone bank studio and the pitching studio. You'll hear (and see) live radio!

Drinks, snacks, food, coffee and tea are all made available for our volunteers. These items are donated by local businesses that support us -- and they're donated for you.

Call now to schedule a time to be a phone volunteer -- (315) 312-3690. We'll send along directions and a parking pass. We're located in Oswego, on the SUNY Oswego campus in Penfield Library. We're about 30 minutes from Clay and the North Syracuse area. About an hour from East Syracuse or Watertown. And just 45 minutes from downtown Syracuse.
