MILLER KEYSTONE BLOOD CENTER is currently looking for volunteers to prescreen donors at our Donor Centers in Easton, Bethlehem and Allentown. This opportunity consists of asking donors 3-4 questions that are Covid-19 related and taking a forehead temperature. This is an ongoing opportunity.

FORGOTTEN FELINES AND FIDOS, INC, Germansville. The shelter house and barn are home to about 150 felines on any given day, so the need to clean food bowls, wash linen, clean litter boxes, etc. is endless and is done daily including weekends and holidays. Some of our animals need to be socialized in a family/home setting, and sometimes we simply run out of space for our animals. An interview may be all that is separating you from a foster pet while we search for a forever family. Contact Mary Ann Schaeffer, 610-737-6851, fffvolunteer@verizon.net.

 

LEHIGH VALLEY HEALTH NETWORK is currently offering volunteer opportunities to those aged 18 through 64 at all our hospital sites: LVH-Cedar Crest, LVH-Muhlenberg and LVH 17th Street. Opportunities include volunteering in our gift shops, in-patient pharmacy, sterile processing department and the volunteer office.
