Each member performs a Unit of Service which becomes their part of the Benefits of Membership that HEED provides to its member families. As a volunteer organization it is imperative that each member do what he/she has signed up for.
Each year as members renew HEED membership, they also choose their Unit of Service. The following have been popular options: plan a field trip; greet, set-up, or clean up at meetings; bring homemade treats to meetings; or help with the Resource Center or with a special event. There is a penalty fee for not completing a unit of service, unless you have been exempted by the Board.
There are other areas as well, and new ideas may be approved by the Board.
Exceptions are made for single moms, expectant moms or as needed and board approved.
