Volunteer

The temple is managed by the most dedicated volunteers in the Exec Committee and in the Governing Body, however a non-profit organization relies on the services and support of the volunteers like you for helping in running the temple successfully.

 
Guidlines
 
1. All Committee Chairs will have specific jobs when the volunteers arrive so that they can get to the work and leave with a sense of accomplishment in a given period of time.
2. Everyone will be respectful and fair to all those who volunteer.
3. Encourage a positive and œcan do attitude.
4. When we work for more than three hours we will provide a small snack and drink to keep our energy and spirit going.
5. Service to the temple and the community is very satisfying and a great opportunity to meet people who are as dedicated as you.

We encourage you to join us in any way that would benefit our temple and the community. We currently need assistance in the following areas:
