Cookies for Hospice

JWCC provides baked good items and snacks for patients and their families throughout the year.  *UPDATE* Hospice can only accept items prepared in a commercial kitchen and individually wrapped.  You may bring store bought items, chips, fruit (apples, bananas, oranges), candy, etc. and drop them with the front desk at the Care Center located on Ridgewood Road.  Six service hours will be given for providing 3-4 dozen items.  Contact Joyce Hargreaves for more information.

 

Ink Cartridges

Patty Buschko is collecting your old ink cartridges at all General and Board meetings.  Staples rewards us with $2 per cartridge used on future purchase which can help offset our Courier printing fees and office expenses. 

 

Acme Receipts

Please start collecting Acme Receipts dated August 10 - December 30, 2017! Please turn them in at General Meetings or mail to Kelly Musick!

Volunteer Hours

Volunteer Hours                                                                 (revision 3/13/17)

Volunteer hours (both DIRECT and INDIRECT) may be earned as follows:

 

DIRECT Volunteer Hours

DIRECT volunteer hours are those hours that are “hands on.” You can claim hours driving to and from a volunteer opportunity and by physically spending time doing or performing the volunteer task. For example: you work for two hours at a facility, such as the Haven of Rest, and it takes you half an hour to drive there plus half an hour to return home, you would count 3 hours as DIRECT hours.

Additional DIRECT hour opportunities are as follows:

Blood Donation – a total of 15 hours for each donation.

Goodwill, Salvation Army, Haven of Rest, etc. – Taking used clothing, shoes, etc. earns one (1) hour for fillingonestandard size grocery bag or five (5) hours for filling one large trash bag.  In addition, you would receive half the estimated current value for any furniture, electronics, etc. donated.

Mobile Meals – Six (6) hours per trip.

No-Sew Fleece Throws – Small (infants and toddlers) 2 yards of fabric: 10 hours each.  Large (teens) 3 yards of fabric: 12 hours each.

Pop Tabs (Akron Children’s Hospital) – One (1) hour per sandwich-sized zip lock bag of pop tabs.

Ronald McDonald Charity Golf Classic – All hours worked the day of this event, plus travel to and from, are included in DIRECT hours. Since this is our largest JWCC fundraiser you will receive bonus hours in the form of double hours for those members who work 1-8 hours, and triple hours for those members who work 8+ hours on the day of the event. (Example: if you work 10 hours at the event, you may record 30 hours as DIRECT hours.)

Your 50 Hours

Your fifty (50) hours of volunteer services as a JWCC member may include any of the above suggestions along with church youth groups, scouting and coaching provided your own child or grandchild is not involved.  If your child or grandchild is involved, you may count hours only after you have fulfilled the minimum requirement of 50 hours.

  1. Political Work
  2. Attending other civic club general meetings or sitting on other boards. For example: Junior League, Welcome Wagon, Witan, Copley or Fairlawn or any community Women’s Club, and Homeowners Associations.
  3. JWCC Committee Work – Each member of JWCC must volunteer ten (10) hours of in-club work. The Committee Chairwomen at the end of the JWCC event will submit these hours to the 2nd Vice President.

The following JWCC committees are included: Program, Christmas Brunch, Social, Scholarship Selection, Scholarship Fundraiser, Battered Women’s Shelter Fundraiser, New Member and RMH Golf Classic.

 

**The only committee members who may count hours after they have completed their ten (10) in-club hours are those on our RMH Golf Classic committee, because it is the only committee open to all club members. You may count travel time on this committee.
