New Volunteer Coordinator Wanted
Greenbrier residents, in case you did not see my “ad” in the last two issues of our Greenbrier Gazette, I want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to consider taking over the Volunteer position of Loan Closet Coordinator for Greenbrier.
For the past 10 years I have been coordinating the distribution and acquirement of both medical equipment and children’s items for our community via our Medical and Children’s Equipment Loan Closet.
It is now time for me to “pass the torch” on to some one (or a team of two or more).
I am happy to say that during my tenure in this volunteer position, I have been able to acquire a significant inventory (I inherited from my predecessor who moved to Georgia only a limited number of items). Through the generosity of so many of you over the years, we can now service multiple people wanting/needing the same items at the same time.
VOLUNTEER POSTION REQUIREMENTS:
- A willingness to meet neighbors and a kind heart
- Storage Space Needed: ½ of a 2-car insulated garage
- Equipment Needed: voice mail–either on a land line or a cell phone
HOW THE LOAN CLOSET WORKS:
Someone calls with a request, and after a simple recording form is completed, they either pick up the item(s) or it/they are delivered. (When time to return these items, the borrower calls to set up a day/time to return them).
BY THE END OF MARCH 2017
A volunteer position someone can do from home. No special training is required nor is any certification needed.
HOW TO APPLY:
call Helene Conklin at 252-638-5250.
IF NO ONE STEPS UP TO TAKE THIS MUCH-NEEDED POSITION IN OUR COMMUNITY, THE LOAN CLOSET WILL NO LONGER EXIST (and all equipment will be donated to several low-income-oriented nursing homes).
Thank you for your time in considering accepting this position.
