This had been discussed for a while, but Lyn was looking for something to do outside of the house. I have my Dog Rescue, Photography, Ham Radio that keeps me busy and gets me out with people. We researched volunteer opportunities and needs in Savannah and through a tip from a friend, investigated Ronald McDonald House Charities.
They have several volunteer opportunities and she was interested but did not pursue it for a bit, then approached me to get her the Info. We downloaded the application and she filled it out and sent it in. She was contacted a few days after and they sent her a questionnaire, information and a small test and they scheduled her first (and only training day) for Feb 19th. She had to get a TB test and dropped off the results along with the Questionnaire etc where they put her on the schedule starting 2/29. Her first day went well (she is looking to volunteer for 2 3 hour shifts per week).
Lyn initially is working the Family Room at Memorial Hospital and later will likely also do some shifts at St Joseph/Candler. Down the road, she would also like to train to volunteer right at the Ronald McDonald House in Savannah.
