Area organizations seek volunteers
Several local organizations are offering a range of interesting and rewarding volunteer opportunities.
As part of a multidisciplinary hospice support team, you can be a friend and resource to a patient during the final stages of illness and counsel with family members during the bereavement process. Hospice volunteers will be provided with training.
Many key volunteer assignments are available for a child abuse non-profit agency, including researching placements for children who have been removed from their homes, reviewing foster care cases and making recommendations for permanent placement, and working with families in which abuse has occurred. Training is provided for volunteers.
Volunteers are needed to make lunch deliveries to seniors. Hot meals are picked up at a Pasadena community center and delivered by volunteers to shut-ins. Volunteers are asked to make weekday deliveries two to four times a month around noon. For some of the seniors, these visits are the only human contact they have all week, so volunteers are greatly appreciated.
A Pasadena agency needs volunteers to help women cope with the challenges and concerns of unplanned and crisis pregnancies. A wide variety of opportunities for involvement are available, from office tasks to teaching life-skills classes and mentoring. The center is open on weekdays.
