SHOUT is all volunteer, and we need a lot of people pitching in to meet all our needs, especially as SHOUT grows. This is where we need help the most – if you’re interested in helping in any area, please contact Molly or Sandi. There’s a place for everyone!
- Care Baskets – We could use some people who would like to put baskets together for new members, and especially for girls going for their first surgery.
- Encouragement Cards – Do you like to encourage? We just want to send regular cards of encouragement to our girls in active treatment. It would be great to also have cards at meetings we can all sign for those who don’t feel well enough to join us.
- Event Planner – Molly needs help with the nitty-gritty details that come with SHOUT events, such as coordinating and picking up food, setting up a venue, etc.
SHOUT has a hat and scarf exchange. If you’re sick and tired of your current collection, bring in your old headwear and see what we’ve got for you to try. For those of you that have finished treatment and never want to wear a hat again…bring ’em in!
Have a need, or want to help out? SHOUT has a community website called Lotsa Helping Hands. This is our way to coordinate our outreach needs, such as food delivery for girls who just had surgery, rides to chemo treatment, etc. As an added bonus, the site also has blogs and photo albums. To join the community, just follow this link, then enter your e-mail to request to join – please tell us about yourself in the comments. One of our SHOUT coordinators will approve to get you in.
The site is not just for SHOUT survivors, we encourage anyone who wants to volunteer to register. You can view a calendar of our needs, and sign up to help out! There’s also a special section to encourage those you care about.
Send us your ideas for other ways to help. We are looking for motivated volunteers who would like to help out as we grow. Let us know if you are interested.
