  • PR-Marketing Volunteer

    Posted: 03/06/2019

    We are in need of some assistance in the general area of PR and Marketing. Maybe it's you, or someone you know. We would appreciate your help locating the perfect person to fill this much-needed role.

    Our Kids' Closet is a non-profit, all-volunteer, community-based agency.  We provide gently used clothing at no cost in a store-like setting to low-income, foster families and emergency visits for families living in the WOW counties (Washington, Ozaukee and Waukesha).
     
    We are reaching out to you in hopes that one of you or someone you know could help us.  We are looking for one or more volunteers to help us with public relations/marketing tasks. We would like to spread the word about Our Kids' Closet to help more families and we ask for your help to do so.   Please check out our blogsite to learn more about us at http://ourkidscloset.blogspot.com.
     
    This might be a great fit for someone who wants to help OKC but volunteering on-site just doesn't work well for their situation.
     
    Below is a list of possible duties/options.  This is a new role, so none of these are duties/options are set in stone. We have some flexibility to work with your strengths, availability and comfort level.

    • Develop and maintain a list of local organizations and contacts
    • Send yearly letter to schools, churches, food pantries, social services, police & fire departments, etc. - either via email or snail mail
    • Drop off brochures to food pantries in WOW (Washington, Ozaukee and Waukesha) counties 
    • Meet with and drop off brochures to all three county social services persons 
    • Research, seek and write grant applications and solicit donations
    • Contact local papers and media for articles about OKC
    • Posting things on social media - Facebook - select pages of course
    • Make presentations to local organizations (church and civic) upon request
    • Represent Our Kids Closet at various events (generally manning a booth to answer questions and hand out literature)
     
    If you or someone you know might be interested, please contact us via email at Ourkidscloset.gtown@gmail.com or leave a voice mail message on our cell phone 262-844-8554.
