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, 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.
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!

It has been too long since I have added some content to the volunteer blog. No excuses except a bit of vacation and some down time due a plain old fashioned cold.
It has also been too long for you, the reader who has been considering becoming a WXXI volunteer, to come forth and sign up. I know it is hard to decide upon which of the many places you should be giving your valuable time, so let us help you with that decision! Give one of our membership and volunteer personnel a call at (585) 258-0200 and schedule a visit to WXXI. Mention that you are considering becoming a volunteer. You will get a personal tour of the facilities and an introduction to the many facets of volunteering at WXXI.
This entry is for those readers who may not be a WXXI volunteer, have read the information about volunteering on the WXXI web site, but still need to a little push before you rush off to send in that volunteer application.
Yes, it is true that volunteers have fun while we are performing our various duties. Whether it is answering telephones, stuffing envelopes, greeting visitors at one of our many events or guiding a tour through our beautiful facilities.
Thanks to all the staff at WXXI for agreeing to let me set up this volunteer blog. This blog will have many purposes, the main one being to inform all of our volunteers about upcoming events, what volunteer jobs we need to fill and general news regarding our volunteer family.
I really mean "family" because if you were at the Volunteer Recognition Dinner last night, it felt like family. Lots of kind words from the WXXI staff and plenty of remarks from the volunteers about how wonderful an evening it was.
Our thanks to Judy Cutaia and all of the Pink Ladies, who worked so hard to treat us so well.
