Cancer Support Volunteer - Lake Wales

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: RSVP Polk

  • 1 person is interested
AmeriCorps Senior

Covid restrictions mean that cancer patients are receiving infusions without the support of their loved ones. They need the comfort of a friendly face, warm smile, and light chit chat to go along with their warm blanket and pillow.

You can make someone’s journey a little less stressful by volunteering to provide support at the Florida Cancer Foundation’s Lake Wales office.

In addition to helping support the patients you will also help the staff by assisting with restocking, wiping down chairs and escorting patients.
