Be A Subscription Drive Volunteer at KCRW

KCRW logoKCRW is starting its pledge drive this Friday, January 29 and they need volunteers. They have volunteer shifts through the day and evening that run two to three hours each. There is free parking, lots of delicious snacks and drinks and a lot of fun people to work with, all while helping the station meet its financial goals.

I’m practicing what I preach and have signed up for two shifts. I’m a morning person so I’ll be answering phones the next two Fridays (1/29 and 1/4) from 6:00 am to 8:00 am. I’ve done it once before and really had a good time. In fact, I found when I was volunteering last time, I never changed stations during the drive as I was so invested in the outcome.

Go to KCRW’s Drive Volunteer page and read more, then sign up. They especially need people for early morning shifts. The pledge drive lasts from January 29 through February 8. Plenty of shifts to cover! KCRW is located on the campus of Santa Monica College.

If you can’t volunteer this time, consider becoming a member (if you aren’t already) or make sure to renew your membership. Call before 8 this Friday morning and it might be me taking your pledge!

  1. These things are actually lots of fun. I’ve done the KCET nights in the past, people on the phones are nice and the snacks are usually more than enough to keep you going during the short breaks you get. Plus its for a worthy cause.

  2. Hey Julia!

    I’m KCRW’s Drive Director and I just want to say thanks so much for this post!

    It’s true! We do our best and work very hard to ensure that KCRW will stick around for another year – and we try to have a good time doing it. Just like KCRW itself! I’ve even written my 5 Favorite Things about the drive to proove it: http://blogs.kcrw.com/fivethings/2010/01/5-things-i-love-about-the-kcrw-subscription-drive/

    Please say hello tomorrow! Can you believe it’s tomorrow?!

    Best,
    Laura
