Do you participate in Campbells or Box Tops? Send the labels home if she can't pick them up, then she can clip them at her leisure.

Have her do flyers, etc. if she has a computer.

I might suggest that you initiate a evening volunteer group with an individual willing to coordinate volunteers wanted to do a few things in the evening. The teachers could put a project in the evening volunteers box - you know - cutting stuff, glueing, stapling, and those kind of at home projects.

I can think of several things... Do you have a newsletter? Writing, data entry, etc.. can all be done at home. Does this person have a computer? Is she good with it? What types of things does she like to do?
Do you have a silent auction? We utilize lots of people to solicite donations. One person just sends out letters (to chain restaurants, video chains, anywhere that won't talk to us til they've received a letter...). That can easily be done at home. Then, most of those letters need follow-up phone calls... Also, some companies need an initial phone call, then a letter. If they get a donation, they can pass the info to someone else to pick it up.

I'm sure I'll be able to think of more things later...

By the way, many of our most active parents work full-time. I've been at our school four years & every president has worked full time. I also work full time & will be pres. next year. I must admit though that I only have one child & that does make a difference.

Take care,

Hi I have a quick question about volunteers. I just got off the phone with someone who wanted to know what kinds of things she could do from home since she works full time but would really like to help out in some way. The only things I could think of off the top of my head were baking or making phone calls to other people who had volunteered for specific events. Any other ideas? thanks, maggie
