From time to time the Center of Concern has the need to call our entire client list to inform them of important limited time opportunities, such as scheduling Covid-19 vaccinations, special events, and performing general wellness check ins. We are looking for a group of volunteers who are comfortable calling our clients to inform them of opportunities, get them signed up for vaccinations, and get them in touch with our staff to handle any other concerns they may have.
