Big Week for Volunteer Events


Flu Shot Clinic

The Cascade City-County Health Department is seeking volunteers to help with their annual Walk-In Clinic on Sept. 26 at the Montana Expo Park. The clinic provides a fast way for locals to receive their annual flu shots. These volunteers are needed to help process client’s paperwork, collect payment or insurance information, and provide information to clients. Anyone interested needs to be able to write legibly, handle confidential information, and be polite to clients. Volunteers will serve from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. To volunteer and schedule a shift, contact us at 727-3400 or jbriggs@uwccmt.org. We still need a few more volunteers to help out.

 

Preparing for Red Ribbon Week

Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. In order to keep this tradition of awareness strong, Alliance for Youth is in need of volunteers to help count and sort 1,500 red ribbons for distribution to local public schools and nonprofit organizations.

Volunteers will serve on either Sept. 28 from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. or on Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. depending on when the most people can serve. The more volunteers we get, the less time this task will take. Ribbons will be counted and sorted at the Paris Gibson Education Center at 2400 Central Ave., room 109. If you can help out, please contact Jessica at 727-3400 or jbriggs@uwccmt.org with which day you can volunteer.

 

Stand Down for Veterans

The Vets 4 Vets Stand Down brings together government agencies, faith-based organizations, housing providers, nonprofit agencies, and local businesses to connect veterans with job services, legal advice, financial advice, claims and benefits, family services, psychological and addiction counseling, physical therapy, and haircuts. Medical services and health screenings such as dental, blood pressure, hearing and vision will also be available. Homeless veterans are also able to receive clothing, shoes, and other surplus supplies, provided they have met the eligibility requirements. The event is open to all area veterans and their families. We need your help to better serve those who served and still serve us.

Event coordinators are looking for 10-15 RSVP volunteers to assist veterans with the various booths at the Stand Down and to ensure their intake forms are completed. The Stand Down runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28 and Friday, Sept. 29 at the Montana ExpoPark’s Mercantile Building. Volunteers can work a full day or partial day. To volunteer and schedule a shift, contact us at 727-3400 or jbriggs@uwccmt.org.
