|Volunteer At Our Legacy Retreats®!|
Thank you so much for your willingness to consider volunteering for an Inheritance of Hope Legacy Retreat®! We have found that our volunteers are what make the weekend the most restful, the most memorable, and the most enjoyable for our families. However, you should know that it is a busy weekend, and there is little time for rest for our volunteers. The primary role of our volunteers is to assist parents and our children’s counselor with care for the children. Many of our parents are weak from the progression of their disease or just plain tired from the ordeal their family has endured. Most families jump at the chance to have a volunteer accompany them into the theme park, waterpark, or on other activities. In other cases, the parents just need a rest and will trust you completely with the care of their children. We encourage our parents to take advantage of your presence and willingness to help, as for many it is an opportunity they rarely find at home. Other duties include bringing luggage to and from the hotel rooms, organizing and delivering breakfast, helping with airport pick-ups and drop-offs, and being available for whatever might help or encourage our families.
In order to devote our limited financial resources to the needs of our families, we ask our volunteers to raise support to cover their expenses during the retreat. We ask each volunteer to raise $400 in addition to the cost of transportation to the event. We do provide a “raising support” information packet, providing letter templates, Inheritance of Hope brochures, Legacy Retreat® information postcards, a video about our Legacy Retreats®, and suggestions on how to raise your support goal. We will send you this packet as soon as your application is received and approved.
Thank you again for your willingness to serve! Inheritance of Hope could not serve these families without you!
