We have created a Volunteer Newsletter to make sure our loyal volunteers have a easy way to check on upcoming events and the need for volunteers at those events. The newsletter will be published on a quarterly basis. It will be emailed to all volunteers as a PDF file and will be published in the volunteer blog section.
Yes, we know that Winter is still blowing snow around our Rochester communities, but Spring and Summer are not far away. The warmer season brings us not only sun and fun; it brings us all of those great festivals the Rochester area is so well known for.
WXXI participates in many of these festivals and we need volunteers to help us out in our booth. Booth volunteers promote and explain the many ways WXXI supports our communities with music, art, education and health programs for people of all ages.
The festivals that WXXI will be participating in this year are:
Yes, it is radio drive time again! The drive begins on Friday October 16 and ends on Friday October 23.
We need volunteers for all shifts on every day. The shifts are 6AM to10AM, 10AM to 2PM, and 2PM to 6PM. The most important shifts are the early and late shifts as they are the "drive time" shifts. Shift times may vary on the weekend. We know that many of you work or have family duties during the normal shift time, so feel free to come in at whatever hours you can fit into your schedule.
Speaking of Women's Health, WXXI's biggest event of the year, was held last Thursday on September 17. It was a big success with over 1000 women participating in sessions on all aspects of women's health.
The attendees were able to see and learn about the newest in health trends, makeup, foods, exercise equipment and much more. They could even get a massage, an eyebrow wax or have various blood tests performed - at no charge!
Yes, it is TV membership drive time again! We thank the several volunteer groups that have asked to be part of this one but we have three nights still open.
If your group of 8 or more would like a little free publicity, with your logo displayed on screen and your mission described by the TV talent, then now is the time to let us know!

The TV Drive Is Coming Up Soon - A Great Opportunity For Your Group Or Club to Get Involved As WXXI Volunteers
The Winter TV Membership Drive will begin on November 28 and continue to December 16. WXXI will be presenting many great shows and specials during the drive.
Did you know that the TV drive can help your group or club gain recognition in the community? Each group that brings 5 or more volunteers to answer the phones during the drive will be recognized by the on-air talent with a short description of the group and their logo will be shown on the screen. What a great way to get some deserved recognition while volunteering your time at WXXI.
