Volunteer

Current Volunteer Opportunity:
Members Helping Members

Want to Help?  Need Some Help? 
During this challenging time we recognize that some of our chapter members may be in need of assistance. In response we are setting up a support network called Members Helping Members, and we are making available assistance to ANY chapter member that has a specific need (see the list below for some examples). If you (or a member you know) could use some help, or even a little emotional support, don’t hesitate to email our Member Assistance Coordinators: membershelpingmembersswfl@gmail.com

 
The coordinator will then make contact with the member in need and arrange for a volunteer helper to fulfill the requested task.
 
As this is a new program we are still looking for help. If you are interested in being either a coordinator or volunteer helper you can also email the coordinator mailbox at membershelpingmembersswfl@gmail.com and state what services you are willing to help with and the geographic area within the chapter you are willing to travel within. 
 
Stay well and know there is help available -

PLEASE NOTE:
Participation in this as a volunteer to help OR a recipient of help is voluntary, and up to each member to personally decide if they want to participate.
