You can support the Mission of The Marty Lyons Foundation by becoming a volunteer. We offer a number of opportunities (at both our national Headquarters and local chapters) for you to choose from:
Wish Granting Volunteer
If you would like to work directly with families in helping to fulfill a wish for a child, then this is the position for you! You will work hand in hand with our Program Services Coordinator to help organize special wishes. As each wish is unique, your responsibilities will vary but can include meeting with children to determine their wish, making arrangements for the wish and calling families post-wish to gather details of their experience.
Medical Outreach Volunteer
If you enjoy speaking with people, have a medical background or are familiar with medical terminology, this could be the position for you! Your responsibilities can include explaining medical eligibility requirements, helping to increase referrals and creating awareness of the MLF mission within the medical community.
Speakers Bureau Volunteer
If public speaking is something that you enjoy, this will be your perfect spot and a most important role as we strive to “get the word out” about the MLF mission. Your responsibilities may include visiting schools or community groups to relate the MLF story and representing MLF at community events.
If organization is your thing, you would be perfect in assisting the Staff at the MLF Headquarters. Your responsibilities may include performing data entry, handling correspondence or assisting with special events. (Computer experience is required.)
If planning events is your expertise, we welcome you to consider holding a fundraiser to support the MLF mission. Whether you plan a dinner dance, bake sale or an “a-thon”, as a Beneficiary Event Volunteer, your only limitation is your imagination! The MLF HQ Staff will be there to offer guidance.
As a General Special Events Volunteer, your assistance would be most welcomed by our local chapters. They are always seeking qualified people to help them with special events by obtaining raffle/ auction donations, setting up/breaking down events, selling raffle tickets and more.
If your child is in need of community service, MLF is proud to offer age-appropriate opportunities depending on their skills and our need. Please contact HQ for more information.
If you wish to join the many friends and supporters of the Foundation and need additional information about volunteering, please contact us directly.
