Oneida County Non-Profits Can Get Free Help

Nov 5, 2013

The deadline is approaching for Oneida county non-profits to get some free volunteer help.

Each year Leadership Oneida County needs projects from non-profits. The effort is jointly sponsored by UW-Extension and Rhinelander Chamber of Commerce. This year 16 professionals are learning about the business, education, medical, media and other aspects of Oneida county life with an eye toward finding a new generation of leaders here.

Chamber Director Lara Reed says they need at least five more non-profits to submit entries to have enough for the prospects...

"something that doesn't quite make it up the priority list of things they need completed. It can be a brochure or marketing materials, perhaps publicizing an event..."

The candidates spend time with the non-profits providing the help. Reed says the only exception is they can't help with fundraising activities. She says the projects need to be completed by the candidates for May graduation......

" is absolutely volunteer help. There is no payment or anything out of pocket. What we do need is somebody from the organization to serve as a mentor to provide some guidance, answer questions if that is needed. It is absolutely free volunteer help from our group...."

Reed says any Oneida county non-profit can join in. Applications are on the Rhinelander Chamber of Commerce website at or you can stop by the offices on Kemp Street. Deadline to apply is November 22.
