Volunteer Opportunities during the COVID CRUNCH

Jul 22, 2020 at 08:00 am by WGNS

Several volunteer opportunities are available through local non-profit Barnabas Vision in Murfreesboro. Some of those opportunities involve things you can do from home, like sending hand written encouragement cards to seniors living in nursing home facilities. Some of the homes for seniors are requiring social isolation from loved ones on the outside.

Barnabas is also seeking mentors to work with residents who are going through difficult times right now.

Learn more by emailing Barnabas Vision servantheart@thebarnabasvision.org

More opportunities below:

Nursing Home Encouragement Cards - Barnabas Vision provides hand written encouragement cards to Murfreesboro and Smyrna nursing home facilities while so many are socially isolated. This is an easy way to volunteer an hour of your time to make a difference in a senior citizen's life! If you would like to write cards you can mail them to The Barnabas Vision and staff will get them to the nursing home! For more information please email them at servantheart@thebarnabasvision.org.

L.I.F.E.Mentor - The Barnabas Vision is currently seeking L.I.F.E. mentors for its Murfreesboro and Smyrna / La Vergne sites. Mentors meet with Barnabas Vision clients who are going through difficult times and walk LIFE with them. These meetings could take place at Barnabas offices, coffee shops, churches, restaurants, really wherever is comfortable for the mentor and mentee. If you are interested in being a LIFE mentor, please email staff at david@thebarnabasvision.org.

Administrative Tasks - Barnabas Vision relies on volunteers to keep things moving, so if you have a desire to assist with data entry, answering phones, cleaning, or other related office task this is such a huge help, according to founder David Coggin.

Group Facilitation - Barnabas Vision has many support and spiritual groups which are conducted on a weekly basis by volunteers. If you are interested in leading one of these groups please reach out to Barnabas for more information!
