A Friday night volunteering at PBS during Radio Festival 2015

It's been busy busy busy here! Radio Festival went well and an amazing team of volunteers took the calls, entered the memberships and packed and sent the memberships. This weekend we've got another amazing team scheduled to pack 2,800 the renewals, and then every Wednesday until July from 1-5pm more amazing volunteers will help send the rest of the memberships and donation receipts. Thank you dear PBS Volunteer for making this station what it is - a volunteer powered, community organisation, dedicated to supporting under-represented music in Melbourne. For more volunteer opportunities, check out the below:

Helping at the PBS RABB gigs mostly involves assisting parents, taking photos, talking to people about PBS, pusher traffic management, working the door and sticking up a few posters at the venue to advertise the event. Email mara@pbsfm.org.au if you'd like to help.
