Nauset Neighbors has just added an online volunteer signup capability for services to members. Volunteers are sent a link via a private email that allows them to view all outstanding service requests by members and to sign up online to help. This gives members more choice in what services they and provide and how actively they wish to participate. The listing changes constantly throughout the day as volunteers offer to provide services and members make additional requests.
The current method of calling volunteers to help fill service request by members will continue for those volunteers who prefer to be contacted in this manner.
Dick Elkin, the VP of Member Services stated that "We hope this new technique will reduce the number of phone calls that the office staff needs to make, and let us support our growing number of members".
