              Volunteer Needed to Help Children with Special Health Care Needs
The Summit County Public Health Department and Early Childhood Connections, funded in part by the Summit
Foundation, is looking for volunteers to help assemble Assistive Technology devices for Children with Special
Health Care Needs in our community.

We will assemble assistive and rehabilitative devices for these disabled children. Public Health will provide all
materials (PVC, cloth, plastic netting, glue, etc), and simple and easy-to-use assembly diagrams. Initially, a staff
person from Public Health will be available to train volunteers. We will distribute the equipment to children in
the program.

We need your help! The volunteer group will gather on an ongoing basis -- once a month for approximately 2-
4 hours, to build the devices (Sometimes it might be every other month, depending on need). This is a small
time commitment that will have a HUGE impact on children’s lives in our community.

A planning meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 9, at 11:30 a.m. at the Timberline Adult Day Care in
the Community & Senior Center. We will meet monthly, so if you cannot make it in December please be sure
to sign up for January or February!

To volunteer, please call the Senior Center front desk at 668-2940. Or contact Public Health directly to
sign up        Sarah Karges at (815)483-6673 and
