Bowdoinham: Election Day Volunteer - Spectrum Generations

Save to Favorites

Spectrum Generations

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Spectrum Generations relies on funding from towns where we serve Meals on Wheels participants. We are only able to serve these home-bound older adults with help from the community. The town requires a petition to be signed by a certain number of residents in order to vote on and/or approve funding for Meals on Wheels in their town.
We need volunteers to help us collect resident signatures, the best time to do this is Election day when residents are already coming out. Due to COVID 19, all volunteers and staff are required to remain outside of polling location.

When: Election Day, Tuesday, November 3rd

Varying two hour shifts from 8 am - 5 pm or until enough signatures are collected.

Where: Bowdoinham Town House
