At this moment, looking forward at the calendar, there are only four weekends of outreach craziness left. The weather is cooling (too rapidly for my tastes, if we’re being honest) and we may be bundling up, but the fall community festivals are still going strong and a lot of fun! Since the beginning of September, we’ve gotten the word out about Ahimsa House at 35 outreach events, ranging from professional presentations and task force meetings to restaurant profit shares and adopt-a-thons. Think about how many individual people we’ve reached and the lives we’ve touched. And it’s all thanks to our dedicated team of volunteers!
I’d like to honor Dawn G., the Ahimsa House October Outreach Volunteer of the Month! Dawn was a huge asset to Ahimsa House at our East Lake PGA TOUR Championship concessions stand, and kept up the hard work this month. Weekends we were double (or even triple!) booked, I didn’t have to worry about local events as I drove all over the state because I knew that Dawn had it under control! So far, she has represented Ahimsa House at Fido’s Market Fall Festival and Dogtoberfest at East Atlanta Village, and will be giving out candy and Ahimsa House information this weekend at the Atlanta Animal Rescue Friends Festival. Dawn, thank you SO much for all of your hard work and great energy!!
Coming up ahead, Ahimsa House is going to tabling at:
- One veterinary conference
- Two workplace giving events
- Four professional resource fairs/vigils
- Aaaand… seven community festivals!!
Wow! That’s a lot going on in just four short weeks, and knowing us, we’re going to sign up for more if we can! If you would like to get involved in the community outreach program, you can contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org or (404) 496-4038. Don’t forget that this fall we are hosting an outreach raffle to win a gift card! The more you volunteer, the higher your odds of winning! You can read more about the contest here.
Finally, with a nod to Halloween and the mood getting suuuuuper spooooky, I wanted to show off the most adorable contest contests we’ve seen in the last couple weeks!
