"I love the birds and your organization and would like to help, but I just can't commit to a weekly shift. Is there another way I can Help?"
Yes, there is.
This year we are starting "Friends of Wild Bird Rehabilitation". The Friends volunteers will focus on two important aspects of WBR - outreach/education as well as fund raising; or as we like to think of it, "Fun raising". Just think, how could we help birds if no one was aware there existed a place to take in injured and orphaned wild birds? Caring for the birds would be very difficult in a building with no heat or electricity; birds always need food and water.
Do you have talent putting together flyers, or power point projects? Maybe you have a good idea for a special event. Perhaps you're willing to talk to groups such as scouts, garden clubs or school classes. Willing to sort garage sale items? Sit with others at information tables, put up sign for events and so on?
As the Friends group develops, I am sure there will be lots of discussion and other opportunities will be identified. How about a group of "Handy People" coming by for all those maintenance needs that comes from working out of an older building.
The birds we care for may be small but it takes people with big hearts to provide that care!
