St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Oak Harbor
Needs teens 16 years or older interested in working for us in their nursery. They are looking for two people who would alternate Sundays and work with an adult volunteer from our congregation. The hours are 10:15 am to 12:15 pm on Sundays and would include childcare and cleaning the nursery after the service. Each person would be required to have a background check done by InteliCorp at our expense and attend a SafeGuarding God’s Children class provided by the Church. They are looking into infant CPR and childcare classes for our volunteers and nursery workers. They will pay $12.00 per hour, so $24.00 per Sunday.
They are also in need of an organist/pianist if you know of anyone interested.
American Cancer Society
is in need of volunteer drivers in the Road to Recovery program to help patients get to the lifesaving treatment they need. Volunteer drivers donate their time and resources to take patients to treatment appointments and return them to their homes. They also provide encouragement and support. To become a volunteer driver for the American Cancer Society, all you need is:
- Safe and reliable vehicle
- Current valid driver’s license
- Proof of automobile insurance
- Good driving record
- Background check conducted on all volunteers.
