There are all sorts of duties in a setting like ours.
>>Since we do not yet have the benefit of electronic health records as the other clinics do, we still do all of our record keeping on paper, thus we have all kinds of paperwork to complete; sometimes the client needs help and sometimes not. We also have simple office tasks that we need done.
>>We are in need of a child care worker, probably a woman alone or maybe a woman and a man. We have many volunteers that have children that cannot come because they need someone to care for their children while they volunteer inside the clinic. We have an excellent facility for that with a playground, nursery, etc. Just no worker.
>>If you are computer savvy, we always have some kind of data processing to be done.
>>If you have good organizational skills, we often times have need of an inventory list developed or some area organized.
>>We always need assistance with hospitality, making coffee, changing movies, greeting people, and such. Many of our clients so enjoy a friendly face or a kind person to talk with them. Fellowship is a rare and much needed asset.
>> If you have specific skills such as money managing or teaching in a specific area, we would entertain the possibility of forming a class for that. Mainly, since some of the patients are at the clinic for quite a while, anything to do with organizing people would be of benefit. .
>>Some mild construction or painting is a need, but that is done at other times besides on clinic days - which remember are the second Saturday of every month.
>> We could use a nurse to do some diabetic teaching or a money manager to help with very tight budgets.
>>Of course, the most important thing we do is talk to people about their relationship to God, encourage spiritual development, or pray with them concerning events or troubles in their life. That is why you MUST be a Christian to be a volunteer at Sharon Clinic; not being critical at all, but being able to bring others to a personal knowledge of Christ and how He can totally transform our life.
There are many other duties needing a committed, interested volunteer to help out.
