We're always working on the website and creating improvements to better connect neighbors looking for opportunities to neighbors in need. So, today we're excited to announce we've launched a new feature that allows our registered volunteers to receive email and/or text (SMS) notifications based related to new project posting. If you want to know when a new Yard Work project is posted in zip code 46807, you can now have a notification sent to your mobile phone or email address.
We know there are a thousand things fighting for our attention every day, and we've heard from so many of you that it's not that you don't want to help, you just don't think about it that often. So, we're creating a way for you to be reminded about your desire to be involved at NeighborLink. It's still up to you to actually put your compassion into action, but at least you now know you could be the first one to know when a new project that meets your abilities is posted.
How to Set Them Up:
Step 1 - Login & Click the Edit Profile button in the yellow tool bar
Step 2 - Click on the yellow Edit Notifications button
Step 3 - Choose either Email Notifications or Text Messages, or both. Check as many project types as you want and include a zip code if that's of interest as well. The goal being to have you respond to projects as close to home as possible, but don't limit it to zip codes if it's a matter of just finding a project that meets your ability. Serve anytime, anywhere.
Hit update and that's it.
