Do you want to become a Make-A-Wish volunteer???
Please join us at the Annual Volunteer Recognition and Training Meeting and come help us make more wonderful wishes come true!!!
Open to all ages but must be 21 years of age and over to grant wishes. No age limit to help with fundraising.
We can't wait to have you join our team!
Please RSVP to Erin Joubert at firstname.lastname@example.org or 504-846-9474
Please visit our website at http://texgulf.wish.org/ways-to-help/volunteering/volunteer to download our Volunteer Application, Adult Consent Form, Conflict of Interest, and Background Check Authorization Form. We ask that volunteers please print, fill out, and bring these forms with them to the Orientation.
To help prepare our new volunteers for community involvement and granting wishes, we also ask that each person donate two small, brand new items ($25 minimum each) to our Chapter. These items can be donated by a 3rd party or purchased by you. This request is actually meant to serve two purposes:
- Our chapter uses these items for auction events to raise money for wishes.
- As a wish granter and representative of Make-A-Wish you will gain experience talking to members of the community to help raise funds for our chapter.
You will join us as we strive to grant 1 wish to every medically eligible child in our chapter territory. We find this step in the "New Volunteer" process serves a valuable purpose and helps prepare the volunteer for what's to come.
In order to move forward in the volunteer process, we ask that you bring your 2 items with you to the training.
We appreciate your help to make wishes come true! We hope to see you there!!!
