Website (New for Spring 2012 - still a work in progress!):
The Hunting Park United web page has three primary functions-Project Posting, Project Selection, and Volunteer Sign-Up. The Project Posting Site is where you can post a project with which you or someone you know needs help. Once a project has been posted to the site, the Hunting Park United Coaches will evaluate, construct (e.g., how many volunteers, and what tools and materials are needed, etc.) and select projects.
Once a project is selected, the Coach posts the project to the Hunting Park United web page. Persons accessing the site can review the posted projects, and volunteer by signing up for a specific project, date and time, and if they so desire, may also donate tools or materials to the effort.
The Coach and the Volunteers meet at the project location at the scheduled time and complete the project--totally free of charge, no donations accepted.
