Some of the busiest people we know are our volunteers. They’re parents, service members, realtors, HR professionals, students, community members, veterans, business professionals, and hospital employees. And many of them supervise homework, lead scout troops, and have fur babies they’re responsible for, too!
Why are we sharing this with you?
Well, because we want you to know just how amazing our volunteers are! And we also want you to know Blue Star Families has all kinds of volunteer opportunities that fit your schedule.
We know you’re busy. We respect your time. And, therefore, we want the time you spend with us to be meaningful, enjoyable, and doable for your busy life.
So, have little time to spare? Here are some simple ways you can volunteer with BSF:
Love the holidays? We often need volunteer support for holiday projects, which include Veterans Day, Valentine’s Day, and many more celebrations.
Possess great organizational skills? Our Chapter Directors need your help to organize Chapter supplies for information tables and identify any materials to reorder.
Savvy with social media? Assist us with growing our social media presence wherever you live! Like and share our content with your network, share our online resources, and participate in contests and surveys. By doing so, you broaden our network and let your community in on valuable resources!
Want to say thank you to our Blue Star Neighbors? Recently, we’ve needed volunteers to present certificates of appreciation to Sleep Number stores, Blue Star Museums partners, and Macy’s – just to name a few. We’ll send you the thank you item to share. You just have to deliver it in person and be your wonderful, grateful self!
And if you’re looking for a more extensive way to lend a hand…
Become a Volunteer Leader in a Chapter location. You can be a Military Lead, Civilian Lead, Social Media Manager, Blue Star Museums Lead, and even Caregiver Lead. We genuinely value our volunteer leadership.
Host a Blue Star Families meet-up in your community. Our volunteers have been a part of hosting Blue Star Museums and Blue Star Parks events in communities all over the country. You could also host a Coffee Connect at your local Starbucks. If you have time to host an event, sign up to volunteer and keep an eye on our monthly volunteer emails for upcoming meet up opportunities.
Have a particular skill you want to share with Blue Star Families? Maybe you want to volunteer to bring your yoga skills to military family members, or you own a skating rink and want to host an evening for families. You could even be a resume writing pro looking to support local military spouses in landing their dream job! No matter what your skill is, reach out to us and let’s see how you can share your talent with Blue Star Families.
