Volunteer Opportunity Details
Description of Duties: The Pembina Valley Humane Society plans 5 annual fundraising events each year to help cover vet costs and other expenses at PVHS. We have two different options available to assist with fundraising!

We are in need of volunteers to help with these events throughout the year by:
- Contacting businesses for prizes, helping with decorations, setting up registration, picking up prizes, planning the event day and distributing posters

Or volunteers can chair a single event each year. This would be mean that you organize and plan the event with another volunteer and with the support of our Fundraising Chair. Commitment would only be for 4 months from initial planning stage to execution of the event.

This would ideal for people who are not able to commit to year round volunteering or have an interest in planning a certain event. We would provide volunteers with a planning schedule and assistance from our board chairs.
