Volunteer in Indiana | Indiana
Our LFA, Indiana Chapter volunteers are passionate and motivated. Whether serving on an event committee, on the board of directors, helping on day of events, or assisting in the office, they are irreplaceable. And WE are grateful.
Our Chapter continues to seek dedicated volunteers throughout Indiana interested in becoming Lupus Support Group Facilitators. The ideal volunteer candidates should have some social services or healthcare background, but this is not a requirement. A passion to serve and modest time commitment is necessary. Interested candidates will be asked to complete a LFA, Indiana Chapter volunteer application, complete a telephone interview, and attend a Facilitator Training workshop. Interested candidates should contact Damiah Woodmore.
We have educational and fundraising events throughout the year, including the A Tasteful Affair in May, the Indianapolis Walk to End Lupus Now! in September, and the In the Loop - Healthy Living with Lupus Symposium in October. These events are successful because of the help of the volunteers who serve on the planning committees. Event planning experience is helpful but not required. If interested, please contact Damiah Woodmore.
Our Chapter participates in more than a dozen health and community fairs each year across our state, with the help of volunteers like you. We'll arm you with knowledge and resources and you help us spread lupus awareness with attendees. If you are interested, please contact Damiah Woodmore.
Our Chapter is small, but mighty. We depend on office volunteers to help us prepare for events, send out informational and event-related materials, and maintain our equilibrium. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 9 to 5 and we are located at 96th and Meridian on the Indianapolis north side. If you are interested in assisting the office, please email your availability to Damiah Woodmore.
The LFA Indiana Chapter Board of Directors is a vital and continuous source of strength for our organization. Members bring passion, experience, and valuable skill sets to ensure the success and growth of our Chapter. If you are interesting in serving on the LFA, Indiana Board, please contact Carla Day, Board Chair.
Our Chapter offers free monthly Facebook Live mindful meditation and gentle yoga classes and is looking for passionate licensed/certified yoga and tai chi instructors who are interested in helping us expand our current program. Please contact Damiah Woodmore.
Our Chapter has several events throughout the year that require photography and/or videography. If this is your skill set and you are interested in helping us capture event memories and help spread awareness, please contact Damiah Woodmore.
Each year our Chapter hosts several events including A Tasteful Affair, Faces of Lupus Fashion Show, Walk to End Lupus Now, and In the Loop Symposium. Join us to help at registration, sell LFA merchandise, and assist with set up and clean up. This is a great way to help the Chapter and have a great time doing it.
