Many Americans are familiar with the term Bible-thumping, but not many have heard of Tub-Thumpers. The phrase originally referred to a person who used old tubs to stand and bang on to get the attention of people passing by to share something they felt was important.
And while a few of us at Timbers have old tubs you could bang on, we'd rather our supporters stand up and tell others the mission of our co-op, and be there when we need someone to bang on the tub to get others attention.
So as a Tub-Thumper what could my role be?
-Serve on Timbers Prayer Team for kids & staff
-Share and teach students about a passion of yours
-Provide academic support to students
-Mentor older junior and high school students
-Help fundraise at events throughout the year
-Help provide internships at various workplaces
-Bring Reese's Peanut Butter cups, and or peanut M&M's to staff (this is one of the more crucial roles)
And if this isn't enough and you still need a tub, let us know, we may know a guy!
