VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

You are an important player in communicating your organization’s goals, aims and vision. But your talents can also be put to use in giving back to the community as a member of PRSA. Here are some volunteer opportunities you might want to consider:

Burn victims experience unimaginable pain and face months – often many years – recovering from the physical and mental wounds. The support of family and health professionals is vital, but victims also have a friend in the Indianapolis-based People’s Burn Foundation. The PBF operates several programs designed to assist burn victims and their families, including: Brave Hearts’ Camp (a summer event for youngsters in Brown County), support groups for loved ones, Ask A Nurse (nurses available to answer questions about burn treatment at the IU Burn Unit at Wishard Memorial Hospital, speaker’s bureau and Amanda’s Project, a burn/fire safety educational program established in memory of Amanda Arnold, a youngster killed in a home fire. The PBF offers an excellent volunteer and support opportunity – and it might make a good fundraising project for your organization. For more information or to get involved, contact: The People’s Burn Foundation, (toll free) 877-814-2024, or www.peoplesburnfoundation.org.

The Indiana Youth Group for gay teens seeks professionals to help develop a media plan for the organization. If interested, contact Andy Frazier, 317-375-1375 or fraizera@hotmail.com.
