Heartbeat to Offer Two Orientations for Prospective Volunteers
Heartbeat of Toledo, a pregnancy help center, is holding two orientations for those who may be interested in volunteering at either its West Sylvania or East Toledo offices. The Volunteer Orientation for the West Sylvania location is planned for Monday, August 28, 10 a.m. to noon at Heartbeat’s office, 4041 W. Sylvania Ave., Suite LL4. This office is located directly across from Westfield Franklin Park. The Volunteer Orientation for the East Toledo location is planned for Tuesday, August 22, 10 a.m. to noon, at Heartbeat’s office, 101 Main St., Suite 101, at the corner of Front and Main in East Toledo. “Most of our volunteers help with our prenatal and parenting classes for new and expectant moms and dads,” notes Pat Todak, Heartbeat executive director. “We also need volunteers to help with our Dine & Dash Women’s Luncheon in December; our annual banquet in the spring; and our ongoing Baby Bottle Drives.” Heartbeat provides pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, options counseling, and assistance to women who are or may be pregnant. The agency also offers prenatal and parenting classes where parents can earn baby items while learning how to become better parents. All services are free and confidential. “The orientation includes a presentation on Heartbeat and tour of our facilities,” Mrs. Todak adds. “Individuals who are interested in volunteering in the office will then be invited to come back for further training. Those wishing to help on a committee will be invited to attend the next committee meeting.” According to Mrs. Todak, parenting class volunteers typically volunteer about four hours once a week or every other week. For more information or to register for either volunteer orientation, call Heartbeat at 419-241-9131. A volunteer application is also available on their website, www.heartbeatoftoledo.org.
