Volunteer Opportunities with CURE Childhood Cancer
We are currently seeking volunteers for CURE Childhood Cancer for the following programs. We greatly appreciate your support and time in volunteering!
CURE Brown Bag Lunch Program As an extension of our Open Arms Meal Program, CURE delivered the first Brown Bag Lunches to the parents of children with cancer who are inpatient at Scottish Rite and Egleston Children’s Hospital on February 22, 2011. This program is a means to help defray the overwhelming costs of caring for a child with cancer and the lengthy hospital stays required for treatment. Because of CURE’s amazing support from our volunteers and others who want to make a difference for these special families, beginning in April 2011 we will introduce a 2nd Brown Bag Lunch each month. We will deliver 60 CURE Brown Bag Lunches twice a month to the hospitals. We are looking for groups, companies and/or organizations to sponsor a lunch, either by donating the cost of the food ($300 for one month) or, preferably, by collecting the food, assembling the bags and delivering them to the CURE office for delivery to the hospital by CURE Volunteers.
CURE is looking for 3 volunteers who can commit to one Tuesday a month between the hours of 11:00 and 1:30 to deliver the Brown Bag lunches to the hospitals. Please note that because you will be visiting the hospital once a month, you will be required to complete the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Volunteer Application Process as well. If you are interested in more information about this special long term volunteer opportunity or donating to our Brown Bag Lunch Program, please email email@example.com or call Lisa at 770-986-0035 ext. 22.
In Office Volunteers Needed CURE needs two office volunteers on Wednesday, April 27th at 9:30am. We will work on preparing t-shirts to present to the dedicated nurses at Scottish Rite and Egleston Hospitals in honor of Nurse’s Week in May. If you are available to volunteer, please email Leigh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
