Carolyn Morris, sets up clothing for free distribution at WIC

About

We need a volunteer coordinator to manage our volunteers on Tuesdays while we distribute free clothing through the WIC Clinic at The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District at 201 West Kenyon Road Champaign. The responsibilities include: ensuring set up and tear down of clothing distribution tables, coordinating volunteers for various shifts, describing the tasks to volunteers and guiding them through completing them. The volunteer coordinator does not need to be present all day but should be present at the start and finish of the day, at each shift change and needs to stay with new volunteers when possible to make them more comfortable and to aid in tasks. This acitivity is extremely rewarding as you get to exeprience the joy of giving! Recipients are ussually suprised at the opportunity to pick out free clothing for their children, and are very appreciative. This is also the most effective part of what we do, we count the number of items distributed and can see how many people we are helping first hand! We'll also consider a Volunteer Coordinator who can coordinate for just half of the day as well.
