Make-A-Wish seeks volunteers
Make-A-Wish is looking for kindhearted individuals to step forward and volunteer their time and friendship in order to assist with wish fulfillment. To become a wish volunteer, individuals must be at least 21 years of age, pass a criminal background check, complete an orientation and attend a training session.
As members of “wish teams,” volunteers are an important component of fulfilling wishes. Working together, the “wish team” meets with the wish child’s family, acts as a liaison between Make-A-Wish staff and the family, and aids in determining the most suitable wish for the child.
Volunteers also help at special events such as golf tournaments and walks.
Attendance at one four-hour training session is mandatory for all interested individuals. This training will familiarize the prospective volunteer with his or her duties to Make-A-Wish and its families. To register for the upcoming training in April, call 1-800-676-9474.
Task force to conduct DUI checkpoint
The Washington County DUI Task Force will conduct a sobriety checkpoint somewhere in Washington County between March 28-31.
