It’s the Holiday Season!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and found at least one reason for be thankful this season. November was successful as we attended the 33rd Annual Northwest Fire & Rescue College at Wilkes Community College, Mt. Hope Fire Dept.’s Auxiliary Fall Extravaganza, and the fundraiser at Full Moon Oyster Bar for Christina Cooper.

We also had a wonderful home visit to see Becky Gordy and attended the Mt. Airy Christmas Parade on the 26th. Remember, anytime you would like to schedule an event or surprise home visit you can do so on the website at www.triadpinkheals.org/visit-event-request.

Thank you to the community and volunteers who help make all these things possible in November, and special thank you to: Tonya & Dusty Wilkins, Taylor Welch, Caroline Cox, Justin Cook, Mike & Teri Ingram, and Byron Greeson.

December has been busy already with two Christmas Parades this past Saturday in King and Pilot Mtn. We also have several more parades coming up so be sure to look for us. If you are a current volunteer, please check the Facebook group for volunteering opportunities with the parades, we would love to have you participate.

To Our Volunteers

The new Volunteer Rewards Program is up and running, if I owe you card please let me know. For every event or visit that you attend you will receive a $5 rewards card that can be put towards Triad Pink Heals merchandise. You can save up your cards if you’d like to purchase higher price point times and cash them all in at once.

We are still looking for Volunteer Mentors, this will be a new program to help support new volunteers coming in. If you are interested please send me an email at whitney@triadpinkheals.org with the subject line Mentor. You are very needed to help keep the organization running, and running smoothly.

We now have VOLUNTEER shirts. If you are in need of one please email me with the size shirt you wear in men’s sizes by December 15th. Email whitney@triadpinkheals.org with subject line Volunteer Shirt. To get a shirt we ask that you have volunteered at least twice in the past year with the intentions of volunteering in the future. A general request is that our volunteers attend 4 events/visits a year; however, we would love to see you out at as many as possible. **If you have already emailed me, you are my list and I will be ordering more shirts and sizes after inventory on the 15th.**

We are always looking for new volunteers, if you are interested please go to the website www.triadpinkheals.org/volunteer and sign up there.

 

Wishing You a Bright & Merry Christmas & a Blessed New Year!

 

With Love & Gratitude,
