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.
