Volunteers needed for Sports Dome fundraising
The fundraising committee for the Russell Sports Dome project is looking for volunteers to help with the fundraising campaign on the weekend of September 24 and 25.
With the fundraising effort having been given the go-ahead by council earlier this summer, the Kin Club of Russell has been gathering money for the project, which should be completed by fall of 2017, through various means. This September, a door-todoor campaign will be held throughout the township in order to solicit donations from residents.
“We need canvassers and support staff to go door-to-door throughout the township and solicit donations for the dome,” said fundraising chair Doug Anthony. “We plan to go door-to-door through the entire Township in one to two days and we need the help of as many volunteers as possible to get it done in a day or two.”
Volunteers will be needed to canvass door-to-door and gather funds through cash, cheque or credit card. Volunteers with a smart phone or tablet will be able to accept credit card payments.
Donations can also be made directly at www.sportsdomesportif.ca. Charitable receipts will be available for any donation over 20$ while special donor support lawn signs will be awarded to anyone donating «$100 or $500.»
“The lawn signs will help us with our awareness campaign and as well recognize those generous donors who are helping us build a world class facility for our residents.”
Those who wish to volunteer can contact Doug Anthony, 613-445-6483 or email@example.com.

Anyone donating $100 or more to buy a piece of the dome receives a white lawn sign; gold lawn signs are reserved for anyone donating $500 or more. Donations can be made online at www.sportsdomesportif.ca or at your door September 24 and 25.—
