Make-A-Wish® Georgia Seeks Gainesville Volunteers
The Georgia chapter of Make-A-Wish is recruiting wish-granting volunteers in Gainesville, GA, and the surrounding areas, to help local children with life-threatening illnesses have their wishes come true.
Since 1995, Make-A-Wish Georgia has been granting the wishes of local children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. There are currently over 600 children in Georgia waiting for their wish to be granted, and volunteers are needed to create, design, and implement these wish experiences alongside our staff members serving as their coaches.
Make-A-Wish will be hosting a Volunteer Training in Gainesville, GA, and individuals are encouraged to register as soon as possible. At the trainings, interested parties will learn about Make-A-Wish and how the organization grants wishes. Once trained, volunteers have the opportunity to make a special wish, such as a trip to Disney World, a shopping spree or an opportunity to become a police officer come true.
What: Wish Granting Volunteer training – specifically for volunteers interested in becoming Wish Granters and working directly with our children and their families.
When: Friday, September 28, 2012 from 6pm- 9pm OR
Saturday, September 29, 2012 from 9am – 12pm
Where: Hilton Garden Inn, 1735 Browns Bridge Road, Gainesville, GA 30501
**Wish Granting volunteers must be 21 years of age or older and complete a background check prior to beginning volunteering.**
Register to attend: Pre-registration is REQUIRED in order to attend. You may register until 12:00 noon on Thursday, September 27, 2012 by contacting Deirdre Trevett, Volunteer Manager at dtrevett@ga-
