Pre-Job Skills Mentor Needed
Help a local lady learn about the modern workplace or volunteer location. Share your talents and skills with someone new!

An experienced card maker or paper crafter is needed to create thank you cards, condolence and get well cards and other general greeting cards for our program. We will provide some card paper, decorative ribbons or tactile symbols for you. If you can craft, cut and fold on the line and match the size to the envelopes I have, this is for you. You will need to use our message and send the cards back to me - with some planning I can send a post paid envelope. The most immediate need is for Thank You cards to mark National Volunteer Appreciation Month in April and then some other cards for our volunteers and clients for their special circumstances. I have a volunteer who is certified in Braille and he will add the Braille message where necessary. This is a great opportunity to use your talents to support a great group of volunteers!
