Give a Little Time. Get a Little Joy.

Give a Little Time. Get a Little Joy.

Pitching in to help with TMCC isn’t just great for the neighborhood. It may also make you feel fantastic! If you’ve ever volunteered, you may have noticed that you feel great after you make a difference.

But, there are even more benefits to volunteering. We feel more connected to others, and we become less absorbed in the normal stresses of daily life. We share our experiences with others and want to help more.

Sure, we know that volunteering makes us feel good. Yet, did you know that, when you volunteer, you are maybe even improving your health?

A report from the Corporation for National & Community Service says that people who volunteered more than 100 hours a year are some of the healthiest in the U.S. And studies from the Journal of Gerontology indicate that social service improves elasticity in the brain.

Ready to reap the rewards of volunteerism? TMCC is just the place to get started. Right now we have a few special projects that need attention.

Treasurer

Are you a professional bookkeeper or CPA? Timbergrove Manor Civic Club is in need of an experienced volunteer to pitch in as Treasurer or our organization. You’ll work closely with our Membership Committee Chair to account for incoming contributions, keep financial records, issue payments and help manage our budget. It’s a really, really important position and we are dire need of someone to step up to help ASAP. Learn more by emailing volunteer@timbergrove.org.

VIN Etching Event Coordinator

VIN etching is a countermeasure to motor vehicle theft that involves etching a vehicle’s VIN onto its windows to reduce the value of a stolen vehicle to thieves.

The TMCC Security Committee is in need of a volunteer who can work with HPD to coordinate the next VIN Etching Event in Timbergrove Manor. The scope of work includes booking services with law enforcement, finding a host venue, managing attendee sign-ups, promoting the event, and recruiting additional volunteers to execute the project.

If you’re organized, good with logistics and just a little tech savvy, please consider helping. Email security@timbergrove.org to volunteer.

Web Developer

TMCC’s current website is built on a WordPress platform. We love the ease of updates and affordability of this technology but want to take our donation offerings to the next level. In conjunction with the organization’s goal to offer members options for reoccurring subscriptions for annual dues, private security subscriptions and more, we are in need of a volunteer with the appropriate web development experience to select appropriate third-party providers and implement new storefront solutions.

Interested in learning more or pitching in with our tech needs? Email directorjvickers@timbergrove.org.

Timbergreeter

“Welcome to the Neighborhood!” TMCC wants to be sure each new resident in our community is given a friendly greeting, introduction to the neighborhood and information about the Civic Club. Won’t you consider organizing this outreach effort? After many, many years, our former Timbergreeters chair person Carolyn Bryant has resigned. Would you consider taking on this initiative? Email volunteer@timbergrove.org to help.
