Volunteers Still Needed!

Respected Readers,

I’m posting in the hopes of encouraging you to join us as a volunteer with DFW Pagan Pride Day. An organization that focuses on building unity through education, community, charity, and activism of Paganism, Heathenism and Earth Centered Spirituality as well as promoting religious freedom and acceptance of ALL in the spirit of peace!
Our goals this year include:
Education
-Share accurate information about Paganism and its pathways through workshops
-Dispel misconceptions and myths about Paganism in a calm and respectful manner
-Direct the community to year around sources of information for continued learning
Community
-Bring the local community together in the spirit of peace and acceptance
-Provide a positive atmosphere for mingling and getting to know fellow members of your community
Charity
-Canned Food benefiting SoupMobile Charity
-Pagans For Life blood drive through Carter Bloodcare
-Distributing information about local non-profit organizations that are Pagan friendly
Activism
-Invite everyone to join together at this event for free and celebrate religious freedom and acceptance in the spirit of peace
-Foster pride in Pagan identity by hosting three public Pagan rituals

Pagan Pride Day is nearly upon us and we’re very excited! We incite you to participate in this celebration, which is also a major fundraiser for next year’s Pride event. I personally encourage you to become a volunteer. There are many people in our areas who need to feel that they are part of the greater community and have a support network. If you join us, I’ll meet you at the event on October 5th at The Bath House Cultural Center on White Rock Lake in Dallas at 8AM. We will need PPD volunteers from 8AM – 5PM. Many shifts are available so you do not need to be present the entire day.

I hope you will join us this year at DFW Pagan Pride Day. This will be the first Pagan Pride Day in the North Texas area since 2010.
YOU CAN BE THE DIFFERENCE THIS COMMUNITY NEEDS!

*Set up and tear down
*Errand running for vendors, workshop presenters,
entertainers and other volunteers
*Manning the ‘Information’ Table
*Accepting donated non-perishable food
for SoupMobile
*Helping keep the grounds free of litter
We will need help:
*staffing the welcoming table

Many more areas may need assistance such as the Children’s section. These volunteers will have to check with the fabulous Hiedi Wunder our Children’s Section Coordinator. You can email her using kids@dfwpaganpride.org . She does have shifts as well but we would prefer that no one goes back and forth repeatedly please. Doing a shift for each the grounds and the children’s section would be plenty for anyone who wishes to do so. That and we hope this might make for less traffic not parent and child related to go on within the section. This being a public event this is also a safety precaution, Thank you.

If you would like to participate, please provide any further contact or other information you would prefer below and return to Emily Dewbre-Young Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@dfwpaganpride.org or come see me at the event.

Hope you will consider checking it out maybe even pass the word volunteers still needed and welcome. Thank you for helping out! We could not make Pagan Pride Day a success without volunteers like you. If you are unable to volunteer, you can show your support by attending on October 5th. See you there!!

Sincerely,

Emily Dewbre-Young
