Agrace Dane County Volunteer & Grief Opportunities for February 2017

Agrace to Offer Orientation for Prospective Volunteers in February

Volunteering for Agrace can be a very rewarding experience. In February, Agrace will offer orientation for people interested in volunteering to make a difference in the lives of patients with advanced illnesses. Agrace has opportunities for volunteers who would like to work directly with Agrace patients, as well as support roles that do not involve patient care. Areas of most immediate need are for customer-service volunteers at the Agrace Thrift Store on East Springs Drive, Madison, and café and kitchen help at Agrace’s campus on East Cheryl Parkway, Madison.

Agrace’s next volunteer orientation opportunities will be held Monday, February 6, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Wednesday, February 22, from 8 a.m. to noon, at Agrace’s Madison campus. Before they attend orientation, prospective volunteers will complete an application and an interview process with Agrace’s Volunteer Services staff to identify skills and interests. Call (608) 327-7163 to begin the pre-orientation process.
