Back to School Drive

One of the side effects of the COVID-19 pandemic is that companies that normally do drives to collect school supplies for our children in Foster Care and other community programs are not happening as employees are working from home. If children are doing hybrid school they still need all of the same supplies. Backpacks are especially crucial because many schools are making the kids keep all of their stuff with them in a backpack. We have an Amazon wish list that you can order directly from Amazon and it will be shipped to us. The link is below or you can go to our website and there is a button to the link, www.pbfalv.org. https://smile.amazon.com/hz/charitylist/ls/2MRA19JFNPPOY/ref=smi_ext_lnk_lcl_cl

Be a Friend/Mentor to Someone in Need

Friendship is a powerful medicine and making friends to help change lives is what Compeer is all about. Through Compeer of the Lehigh Valley we match volunteers from the community with members in need of friendship. Our volunteers spend a minimum of four hours a month (1 hour a week) with a member who is in stable mental health recovery engaging in activities they both enjoy. Volunteers and their matches can do a variety of things together such as going for a walk, chatting over a cup of coffee, talking, playing cards, etc. Volunteers and their matches determine the activities, time, and place to meet, just like you would in a regular friendship. Volunteering with our program helps our members feel less lonely and isolated, and often result in true friendships that last a lifetime. Compeer of the Lehigh Valley has also added a similar service for veterans, called CompeerCorps. Compeer Corps was designed to create a network of military veterans to provide peer mentoring friendships to guardian service members. The goals of the CompeerCorps are to enhance the veteran's self-esteem and self-worth, improve connectedness to civilian society, reduce dependency on emergency services, reduce stigmas through friendship, and to create a strong and supportive environment to successfully lead our veterans on the road to recovery. They sacrificed so much for us, now lets do our part to show them that we still care and that they are just as important. If you know a veteran in need of a friendship, or a veteran who is interested in volunteering with other veterans, we are waiting to hear from them.

Help your neighbors. Even those you have not met. Yet.

Disaster Action Teams provide 24-hour emergency response to various local disasters, most frequently home fires, ensuring that those affected have access to resources for basic disaster related necessities such as food, lodging and clothing. These teams assist the Red Cross in delivering its mission of alleviating human suffering caused by disasters. Essentially our DAT volunteers respond to local disasters on an on-call basis. Once you are trained, you sign-up for on-call shifts (typically 4-6 hours/1-2 shifts per week.) If nothing happens during your shift, you go about your normal day. If an event does happen, the expectation is you would be available to respond, along with other members of your team. Most responses take 2-3 hours and there truly is no better feeling in the world knowing you helped when needed most. Of course, in the event of a large disaster (i.e. apartment building fire) we may call all team members. Also, with experience, we may ask if you are available to help with a national deployment. To get involved and/or for more information, visit www.redcross.org/volunteer or contact us by clicking on the Express Interest button below. What you will do: Focus on client services Interview clients to address their disaster-caused immediate needs, such as the need for lodging and food Conduct damage assessments of affected dwellings and determine habitability Complete forms related to service and provide referrals to other agencies In some instances, assist the family in their recovery planning Assist with medical and emotional needs (must meet specific criteria to be eligible) Requirements: Take Red Cross online and classroom training 18 years or older Valid driver’s license or reliable transportation Flexible to respond to disasters on short notice (disasters happen 24/7 and we respond at all hours, day and night) Provide on-call schedule and can respond as a team, generally 2-3 people, within one hour of being called While most of the situations you will respond to as a Disaster Action Team responder are small, bigger disasters do happen. The skills you’ve gained as a responder are applicable to large-scale events. This includes assisting in the operation of shelters/evacuation centers, performing disaster assessments, supporting mass feeding and distribution of emergency supplies.

Equi-librium Volunteer 2020

Have you ever wanted to use your love for horses to give back to others in your community? Or maybe it’s not the horse part that intrigues you, but maybe you want to be apart of something bigger - like helping an individual walk or talk for the first time! At Equi-librium, we do just that. Equi-librium is a Therapeutic Horseback Riding Center that focuses on helping individuals with special needs reach their highest potential. We have many different volunteer opportunities here. The opportunities directly related to our program would be a Side Helper and a Horse Leader. A Side Helper is directly involved in the lesson, walking alongside the horse and helping the rider reach their goals. The Horse Leader is getting the horse ready (grooming and tacking) and then leading the horse during the lesson. We have everyone start with a foundational training where they become a Side Helper and then a separate training for being a Horse Leader if you wish. Due to COVID and the inability to recruit and train new volunteers over the last few months, we are in desperate need of volunteers in order to have our Fall Session which started September 8th. We are holding a volunteer training on September 12th for those who want to be a part of the miracles that happen at Equi-librium because of our horses. I will be attaching the SignUp Genius in order to SignUp for our training. If you cannot make it to this training session, you can reach out to the Volunteer Coordinator to schedule a different time for your training. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a4aabac2fa4fb6-fall1
