Website and Social Media

Knights of Columbus - Nampa, Idaho - HELP

Work on the new Council website is moving along and should be “finished” in a few days. What is needed now is for a group of our Brothers to help maintain the website, update and monitor our social media accounts. One volunteer, Rob Newell, has already stepped forward.

You can make a huge difference with even a commitment of 10 minutes per week. Keeping our social media accounts clear from unwanted and inappropriate posts can be done from your phone, tablet, computer. Training will be provided and all tasks will be very easy to perform.
