2022 PMG Awareness Family Convention

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: PMG AWARENESS ORGANIZATION INC

  • 1 person is interested

PMG Awareness is hosting an upcoming conference at the Hilton Orange County July 7-9. We are looking for volunteers/sitters/helpers in the Orange County area to help with our childcare room during the conference. The children in the childcare room will consist individuals with PMG, which is a rare brain abnormality, that could be more medically complex (ex: seizures) as well as typical siblings of the PMG children. We would need volunteers comfortable with medically complex children; however, we will have a lead in the room. The hours are from about 8:30am - 4:30pm that Friday the 8th and Saturday the 9th. The exact number of children is still pending, but hoping for 1:4/5 ratio with the kids which puts us needing around 5 or 6 helpers each day.

We are able to divide into shifts if that is easier pending interest in the event!
