Volunteers in South Chicago Needed

Date

March 07, 2019

Location

Illinois

Tiahna is a 15 year old girl who is outgoing and loves history. Her life is often interrupted by medical crisis related to her life-threatening blood disorder. Through her treatments and hospitalizations, she dreamed of visiting the place where her ancestors came from, and when she was referred to Make-A-Wish Illinois, her dream become a reality.

Make-A-Wish is in need of volunteers in Jackson Park and the surrounding neighborhoods to help grant wishes for area children like Tiahna. Bilingual volunteers fluent in English and Spanish are especially needed.

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. To reserve a spot, contact Heather Evans at 312.602.9440 or urinaf@vyyvabvf.jvfu.bet.


Wish-granting volunteers work in teams of two 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.
