About

Want to help Volunteers in Psychotherapy by volunteering for an hour or two, wrapping presents?

Volunteers In Psychotherapy, Inc. is a nonprofit, charitable service,
approved as tax-exempt by the Internal Revenue Service, which provides
psychotherapy that is truly private, in exchange for volunteer work
clients donate to the charity of their choice: A nonprofit alternative
to the loss of client privacy and control experienced under managed care
and at public clinics. VIP has helped over 600 individuals and
families in the greater Hartford area since 1999.

[BTW, people
can NOT earn therapy through volunteer giftwrapping for VIP... VIP
clients earn therapy through VIP by volunteering elsewhere in the
community.]

Volunteers (people like you) who support VIP
will wrap gifts as a charitable fundraising event at Barnes & Noble
Booksellers several days this December. Here's a listing of where we'll
be and when:

Glastonbury [Sun, 12/11 9AM-9PM]

Farmington [Fri., 12/18 3PM-9PM

Canton - Christmas Eve [Sat, 12/24 9AM-6PM].

If you join us, you'll be part of a group who will wrap books that
customers are buying. Customers can then choose to donate a few dollars
in support of VIP. Last year we earned a reasonable amount of money
which supported VIP's charitable service. And many Hartford area people
learned about VIP's work, since VIP Board members are also there,
giftwrapping and explaining VIP's work to customers.
