About AIDS

Project Transitions Offers Volunteer Opportunities, Brief or Ongoing

Project Transitions provides hospice care and supportive living facilities for people with AIDS, and like most AIDS service organizations, PT lives by its volunteers!

While there are always ongoing things to do during business hours, extra volunteers are needed for major bulk mail projects on Thursday, March 7, and Thursday, March 14, at 6pm.

On Friday, March 22, PT needs volunteers to work Club Skirt, a monthly women's dance event that raises money for local organizations. Volunteers will assist with refreshments, decorating, and cleanup, and will answer questions for prospective Project Transitions volunteers and donors. Volunteer shifts start at 6pm.

Of course, Project Transitions has many ongoing volunteer opportunities at Doug's House, Roosevelt Gardens, and Top Drawer, too. Those volunteers are asked to attend an orientation program; the next orientation is Saturday, March 9, from 9am to 4pm.

Doug's House, a residential hospice and supportive care facility, always needs caregivers, gardeners, and Supper Club members. Caregivers provide direct care for residents, including meal preparation, personal hygiene, and companionship. Supper Club members are either individuals or groups who prepare one meal (lunch or dinner) per month.

Roosevelt Gardens, a transitional and permanent living facility, has a constant need for support volunteers and Supper Club members. Support volunteers provide meal preparation, apartment cleanups, and paint jobs, and conduct craft sessions, as well as gardening.

Top Drawer Thrift Store is always looking for volunteer cashiers, donation processors, and delivery drivers.

To find out more about volunteer opportunities, please call Andy Reichert at Project Transitions (454-8646) or e-mail Andrew@ProjectTransitions.org. CSR hours are accepted.
