Volunteer opportunity for fall

Do you like to read aloud? Do you like volunteering your time at hospitals? Do you like using your fun personality to make others smile and laugh? Are you looking for something to be involved in next fall? If so, Healing Words is the perfect organization to get involved in.

Healing Words is an organization of college students that promotes the use of literature in the healing process of patients through reading aloud to them.

"In hospitals, the concentration is rightly on the physical needs of patients--blood pressure, pulse, oxygen saturation--but as a Healing Words volunteer, you will have the opportunity to tend to the person behind the illness. As a reader, you will stir the imagination of someone who needs to hear a human voice in the midst of electronic monitors and media. The Healing Words Program brings together two people--the reader and the listener--for the benefit of both. Your participation in this program will allow you to be the bearer of good news to brighten the days of patients." (Valerie Gribben~UAB)

This organization is still in the beginning process. In order for it to continue to grow and become a success, Healing Words needs you.
