Volunteers are the lifeblood of most non-profit organizations, and Ozarks Public Television is no exception. From pledge drives, to TeleAuctions, to special events, to mass mailings – there is simply no way we could do what we do without our volunteers.
We are fortunate to have many volunteers who donate their time and talents year after year – some for decades – to support OPT. I’m awed and inspired by these individuals. They give so freely of their energy to ensure that public television thrives in the Ozarks – not just for themselves, but for the betterment of the entire community. These individuals are truly the stars of our organization. But they can’t do it alone.
I’d like to invite you to join them; consider becoming an OPT volunteer. With so many opportunities to help, there is something that’s right for everyone. And even better, volunteering at OPT is a chance to connect with old friends and make new ones. If there is a group of people (formal or informal) you’d like to see more often, round them up and volunteer for a shift during our next pledge drive! Or maybe you’d like to connect with likeminded people...others who value education, unbiased journalism, compelling storytelling and performance arts. Volunteering at OPT is a great way to find those kindred spirits.
No matter which opportunity you choose, know that one thing is certain – every moment you spend supporting OPT is both needed and appreciated. To learn more about volunteering, call Lori Street at 417-836-3506. And thank you for considering one more way of supporting OPT.
