As we move into our second year of operation, we are fortunate to have 72 members—moving toward 100—in the PNA Village. In order to make this a sustainable program we need to just about triple our membership.
We have tried a number of marketing techniques, however, our best sales persons are satisfied members. Please talk to your friends and neighbors about the program, what it has meant to you and let them know how easy it is to participate in the village. If you know of someone in your community who could possibly use the PNA Village, let us know who they are and we will contact them.
If you are a village volunteer, don’t forget to tell your friends what a great experience it has been to volunteer for the PNA Village. Tell them how you feel meeting a new neighbor and helping them in small ways that make a huge difference in their quality of life. Let them know how easy it is to become a PNA Village Volunteer.
Share the experience and encourage your friends to join, as a member, as volunteers or both. To learn more about volunteering for the PNA Village, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 206.789.1217 or go to www.phinneycenter.org/village/volunteer.shtml.
