=== Help out for a while===
 
*<u>Greeters:</u> This is a fun job if you like meeting new people and don’t mind talking to strangers. Greet newcomers and ask them why they are there. Help them get a sense of the camp and where to find things. And find out if they want to “sign them up”! for fun jobs that they’ll enjoy… like marching, or making posters, outreach, or even developing policy as we move into “how” do we actually get this done part of the demand process.
 
*<u>Data Entry:</u> onsite, to enter email addresses and other data into computers
 
*<u>Errand Runners</u>
 
**– for the campers…the campers ARE the occupation. If we keep them comfortable, they’ll stay longer.
 
**– for the volunteers at the INFO desk and WELCOME desk. The folks staffing these tables are “stuck” there for hours. And they often need water and other supplies
 
*<u>Trash/Clean-Up:</u> this is everyone’s job and after camping all night outside, it’s hard to remember to clean up everything. You’ll see many smiling faces if you can pitch in and pitch it out. If you can take a few minutes to walk around and pick up while you’re there, that would be great.
 
*<u>Poster Makers and Cardboard Cutters:</u> Make posters and/or cut up cardboard. Fun fun fun!
 
*<u>Supply Sorters:</u> help the LOGISTICS tent sort through boxes and boxes of supplies and organize the supplies.
 
*<u>Community Watch:</u> Night Hours... walk the site to make sure everything is OK. A constant “awake” presence is required at the site for safety, and to show the public that we’re managing things well.
