HELP WANTED AND NEEDED!
Posted: Saturday, June 16th, 2012 at 5:54 pm
The San Antonio Tea Party needs your help in two ways.
First, labor. As a grassroots organization, we rely on volunteers to assist with the many tasks to educate and advocate on issues that concern us. We often hear from good-intentioned folks who support us, who ask why aren’t we doing certain things or taking certain actions. The reason many of these tasks go undone is quite simply we don’t have enough volunteers to take up the causes. We fully appreciate that not all actions are for everyone, but we hope that some of the many who desire change might be a part of that change—helping to lead it or at least assist in making it happen.
If you are one who seeks to make a meaningful contribution to those efforts, consider these immediate needs:
–Neighborhood leaders. We have many enthusiastic leaders in many neighborhood groups, but we still have neighborhoods that don’t have leaders to organize and lead these small groups. Training available! Please volunteer!
–Block captains. These are leaders within specific neighborhood groups who are responsible for a several block area within the vicinity of their homes. The job is to meet the neighbors, encouraging conservatives to join the SATP efforts to change their community, state, and nation. For independents and undecideds, we’ll work to educate and convince them conservative values and responses to the many problems we face are the right answers. Training available! Please volunteer!
–Bookkeeping/accounting assistance. We could use someone with this experience and interest to assist on the financial end of the operation. Training available! Please volunteer!
–Drivers. We’re looking for volunteers to respond to calls for rides to the polls during early and regular voting in July and November. When someone calls our toll-free number and requests a ride to the polls, drivers will be dispatched to assist. Training available! Please volunteer!
–Website writers and editors. We’re always on the lookout for articles and assistance in selecting and editing these for use on this website. Training available! Please volunteer!
–Social media assistants. As we develop the exciting media of Facebook and Twitter for communicating our message, we need individuals who have an interest writing and making these connections. Training available! Please volunteer!
Second, contribute financially. Again, we have some great ideas, but our lack of funds limits our accomplishment of these.
One project that has great potential in educating voters is the use of billboards around town. Billboards are viewed by many during commutes and will serve as an effective medium by which we can succinctly and clearly communicate our message and increase those of like mind in our efforts. We cannot, however, make this happen without money to pay for the billboard rentals. Please give as you are able!
In short, the San Antonio Tea Party is not some distant, remote organization that has no relation to or impact upon your day-to-day life. It is essentially your organization, your voice on local, state, and national issues. But it cannot work without YOU! Please consider helping and giving in whatever way you are able!
