Mailroom volunteers are manning a nerve-center
“I started out working in the mailroom” typifies a common perception of the mailroom clerk being an entry-level job. At Warm Beach Camp, the mailroom is a nerve-center for the organization, handling all the daily incoming and outgoing mail. That can be a couple hundred of pieces in each direction!
In the summer, the volume explodes with mail coming in for the 45 or so summer staffers and even more mail for the kids attending camp. It all has to be sorted and delivered to the right location.
And, it is almost all done by two volunteers! George Leasor and Dawn Morton are two mailroom heroes who have taken on this task. Sorting and processing the mail isn’t a very glamorous job. It is done behind the scenes — some of our own staff are not even aware of who sorts their daily mail — and provides the Camp with a huge savings in labor costs!
Besides these two, there is also a small army of other volunteers who help the Camp process outgoing bulk mailings. A few phone calls bring in a group of people who stuff envelopes, attach mailing labels, and get the letters or brochures into mailing trays. Thousands of pieces of mail are handled each year by these volunteers!
