Equipment Manager for Community Outreach Tables for NAMI Central Middlesex
We set up mental health information tables at big outdoor town sponsored events within the geographic area of our affiliate. The materials available at the table include details about NAMI programs, directions to finding local resources, and information about mental health conditions. The tables are staffed by friendly NAMI members ready to listen or answer questions. We seek an Equipment Manager to help with delivery of the materials to the event site and set up/take down of the canopy and tables.
The equipment includes a canopy, canopy weights, a box of supplies for setting up, two folding tables, a few stacking chairs, and a box with banners. The task involves picking up equipment from our storage place in Maynard MA, setting up & securing canopy, tables, a few chairs, and banners. Then returning at end of event to pick up equipment and returning it to storage place at the end of the event.
A large car or minivan is needed. Set up time is about an hour and pick up at the end about 1/2 hour. The full canopy set up for outdoor events happens 5 to 7 times per year, mostly in the west end of our affiliate region- in either fall or spring, usually on a Saturday.
