Make-A-Wish is in need of volunteers in Jackson Park and the surrounding neighborhoods to help grant wishes for area children with critical illnesses.
A free training session for wish-granting volunteers will be held at LaRabida Hosptial on Saturday, March 30th from 10 a.m. to Noon.
To attend the training, potential volunteers must complete the volunteer application and online training in advance; therefore advance registration is required. Reserve a spot by contacting Heather Evans at 312.602.9440 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wish-granting volunteers work in teams of two directly with families in their communities to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses and have support from the Make-A-Wish staff. All volunteers must be over 21 and submit an application, reference and background check; complete an online and brief in-person training to begin granting wishes.
