The Legacy seeks Volunteers for Moving Day

The Legacy seeks Volunteers for Moving Day

GILLETTE, WY – The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center, Campbell County Health’s new long term care and short term rehab facility, is looking for volunteers to help with the upcoming move from Pioneer Manor to The Legacy. The projected moving day is November 2; and volunteers are needed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day, as well as throughout the weekend prior to moving (October 28-30, 2016).

Administrator Jonni Belden is both excited and anxious about the big day. “Pioneer Manor’s 120 residents will move to their new home all in one day,” said Jonni Belden. “Much like going on a cruise, and based on which neighborhood they are moving to, residents will travel in small groups. They will have their boarding ticket and luggage ready to depart for their destination, board the bus, drive the 6-8 minutes through downtown and be welcomed by a homecoming celebration complete with spirit flags and music. We are heavily relying on volunteers to keep the process as smooth as possible.”

Volunteer tasks include traffic control at both The Legacy and Pioneer Manor, greeting arrivals at The Legacy, neighborhood and kitchen hosts at The Legacy, coat check, meals/water delivery, runners, play/perform music, pack/haul office materials, and pack/haul/unpack computers and phones. Groups, clubs, businesses (up to 5-6 people each) high school age young adults, and individuals are all welcome to help with the move.

All volunteers must attend an orientation session that will be held at various times and dates the last two weeks of October. Volunteers under 18 years old must have a parental release completed. For the safety of both residents and volunteers, orientation is required; volunteers who have not attended orientation will be turned away. Every volunteer will get a t-shirt as a thank you for volunteering.
