You can be the face of Legacy as you welcome families
as they arrive and make sure they get to their destination. You will help them complete
paperwork and interact with our patients, especially children, so they feel comfortable
in our campuses.
Do you like working with children and want to make a
kid’s day brighter? At this placement, you can brush up on your Candy Land
and Lego skills and help staff members entertain children while they wait.
Let our patients know we care about them by providing
homemade goodies for those waiting. In addition, you can provide a morale boost
for staff throughout the day. This job can be done on your own time; just bring
the fruits of your labor to any one of our locations. Nothing says “I care”
like a banana muffin!
Offer a hot cup of tea to clients needing a lift. You
can also step in for the Caring Bakers during peak hours and offer a tasty treat.
Baristas improve the patient experience by offering hospitality on a personal basis.
Legacy’s Outreach staff and volunteers help communities
understand the benefits of a healthier lifestyle. This might involve representing
Legacy at a health fair, testifying at a hearing on accessible health care or talking
with teens about their personal responsibility.
You can help Legacy staff keep track of the campus’s
daily activities by updating and organizing our files. This position often involves
working with a computer, so keep your computer skills current by volunteering today.
You can help improve the look and feel of our campuses
by assisting our professional staff with small jobs around our locations. Even the
best-run agency needs some repairs now and then, and you can make sure our facilities
stay clean and beautiful.
Are you a Master Gardener? We have a community garden.
Are you a calligraphy expert? We send out lots of invitations and notes. Can you
play a piano? We have special events that would be more fun with music. Let us know
what you’re great at, and we can help you use those special skills to assist
Legacy in our mission.
As an individual volunteer, you can
make a difference by helping at one of our locations on a regular basis (every week
or two) or filling a specific one-time placement. We would count on you to be there
at your scheduled time and would have meaningful work for you to carry out. This
is the ideal for people who believe in Legacy’s mission and want to make regular
contributions to their community.
We also need individuals to assist with special events. These volunteers do not
have a regularly scheduled time but can be available as needed. You choose the type
of event in which you want to participate, and we can match your interests to a
volunteer opportunity. The events can be light-hearted, such as our holiday party
for the families we serve, or they can be more professional in nature, such as conducting
outreach to spread the word about our services. We contact you when an opportunity
arises, and you decide whether or not to participate. This is a great choice for
people whose schedules do not allow a regular time commitment, but still want to
help us carry out our mission.
While many of our volunteer opportunities
are designed for individuals, there are times we need a group of people to tackle
a project. For example, planning and planting a community garden at one of our campuses
requires more than two hands. When Santa needs help distributing gifts at a holiday
party for patients, he asks us to contact our great volunteers.
Each group needs a liaison, the person our staff calls on to involve other members.
You could take on this responsibility for a Bible study class at your church, for
co-workers at your job, or for any other group in which you participate. Group members
then choose to participate or not, depending on scheduling.
