Make Volunteering A New Year's Resolution
PHILADELPHIA (December 2, 1999) -- In the midst of this busy holiday season, plan to set aside some time in the year 2000 to volunteer for Fox Chase Cancer Center at their new office located in Bryn Mawr.
Volunteers are needed to welcome patients and visitors, support the work of the receptionist, and manage the patient resource room. Volunteers will have the opportunity to enhance care through direct interaction with patients, families and staff.
Interviews by appointment and training will be conducted at the office. For information, call Kathie Reed-McKain in the Fox Chase Volunteer Services Department at 215-728-2560.
