  6. My group wants to do a community service project. Can we participate in PMD projects?
  7. Why can't I signup my friends to volunteer with me?
  8. Why do I have to sign-up by project sign-up deadlines to participate in PMD projects?

    Volunteers who sign-up by the project sign-up deadlines enable PMD to plan quality community service projects that enable us to (a) send detailed project information PDFs with needed tasks and preparation tailored to the number of volunteers (b) be more confident there will be enough volunteers to complete what we estimate we can accomplish, and (c) make sure that we have the appropriate tools, materials, and other resources for the group.

    Though PMD has sign-up deadlines, if more help is still listed as being needed at http://www.pmd.org/events.phtml after the deadlines, interested volunteers are welcome to call 781-963-0373 to inquire if volunteers are still needed and if so, to sign up. Due to the last-minute nature of these sign-ups, people who call must have email or access to a fax machine (or be willing to participate without the benefit of a map) to receive the detailed project information in advance.

  9. Why do I have to provide my address and cell phone number to sign-up for the email list and for each project?

  11. Why do PMD email and project packets repeatedly discuss my commitment to participate in the entire project and the consequences of not doing so, losing my PMD volunteer privileges?
  12. Once signed up, why am I repeatedly asked to call PMD if I need to cancel?
  13. I have other commitments on Saturdays. Does PMD ever have projects on Sundays or weeknights?

  15. I am required to perform community service. Can I document my volunteer hours with PMD?
  16. Why can't I sign up more than one month in advance?
  17. Can I still sign up to volunteer if the sign up deadline has passed?
  18. Does PMD have a privacy statement?
