MDSC wishes to give our members the opportunity to receive support that they may need at their home. This is a general guidance for the MDSC members and the volunteers to follow. It is important that the MDSC member understands that the volunteer must be comfortable with the specific request before they agree to the tasks. This is open to interested MDSC members ONLY. MDSC Volunteer Chair Bev Boateng will act as the initial Point of Contact between the MDSC member and the volunteer. After Bev connects the member and the volunteer with the exchange of contact information, it is their responsibility to keep one another posted when changes are needed.
Any questions, email Bev at firstname.lastname@example.org.
