Volunteer Opportunities:

 

1. Kidney Mobile Volunteer Opportunity

 

When: Wednesday October 25th, Time: 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Where: EZRA Multi-Service Center; 909 W Wilson Ave, Chicago, IL 60640

The Healthy Advantage program provides monthly health and wellness programming to low-income community members. Every year, the EZRA Multi-Service Center partners with the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois to bring their Kidney Mobile out for a kidney screening event. The event is free and open to the public, and in the past few years our turnout has been more than staff alone can handle. A description of the event is provided below.

 

"The sign-in process requires collecting some sensitive medical information, so we thought it might be best to have volunteers with exposure to the medical field. We are looking for 14 volunteers on Wednesday, October 25th from 9:00am-2:00pm. We will provide lunch, and if some of the group need to be out early for other obligations we can be somewhat flexible with the end time."

If you are interested, please fill out this form SFP Kidney Mobile Sign UpAND sign up here.
