The Christi Center relies on the support of our dedicated volunteers to keep offering free, ongoing support to those in grief. We thank all our volunteers for their “heart” work.
Current volunteer opportunities
Ongoing volunteer opportunities include Phone Support, Office Assistance, Special Projects (occasional mail outs, etc), Special Events (planning and implementation), Outreach (including booths at events), and IT/Tech Support. Specific needs are updated quarterly and we currently have the following volunteer opportunities in addition to our ongoing opportunities. If you would like to volunteer for any of these opportunities, please let us know!
Healing Garden at the Christi Center - After the loss of a loved one, people need time to heal. We are introducing a Healing Garden at the Christi Center, and you can help bring calmness and reflection to the healing process. Join the Healing Garden Team by sharing your time and energy, or donate so that we may grow our garden with flowers, plants, and/or building materials. Read more about the Healing Garden and previous workdays on our blog! Join Angela Carver, our Healing Garden designer and team leader, for gardening days on Wednesdays and Sundays (time to be determined/worked out with volunteers).
We wish to thank our current volunteers for serving 11,555 hours in 2012!!
We could not do it without you. The services our volunteers provide are invaluable. A core of about 100 volunteers contribute more than 10,000 hours annually. It is a gift that is impossible to quantify.
The impact to our organization is undeniable. Volunteers provide services that aid every aspect of our organization’s work — from administrative support functions to assisting with grief sessions and events, to maintenance, to learning how to become support group facilitators and actually working with our members. It is an amazing effort and we are deeply grateful for it.
