There are two types of needs that can be posted in Meet The Need 1) volunteers and 2) goods(items).
Volunteer needs have different types based on the frequency of the need.
There are many categories and subcategories to choose from when you post a volunteer need
1) One Time – only happening on one day
2) Recurring – happening over a series of days (consecutive days, weekly, monthly, etc).
3) Open Ended – no particular day is required for the need to be completed (you are flexible to the volunteer’s availability)
Any item needed as part of your outreach activity can be posted (except for money). Choose from the list of categories and subcategories when you post a need.
As the full quantity of your need is met (either one at a time or as as a group of items) the need will no longer be visible on any website. Once the date of the need passes, the need will expire and no longer show on any website. If a commitment is cancelled for a volunteer/item, the quantity of the need will increase for someone else to meet that need.
