At The Pink House, we have been overwhelmed with the amount of love and support we receive through mail, email, phone calls, and sometimes in less formal ways like a honk of the horn as someone drives by or the unexpected delivery of a gift card for lunch for the staff.
We have good, caring people reach out to us frequently inquiring about volunteering – folks who want to DO something to help defend abortion rights in Mississippi. Unfortunately, our facility and staff are small, very busy, and under frequent security threat. Because we aren’t a big national chain, we don’t have the infrastructure in place needed to vet volunteers, run back ground checks, conduct training, manage volunteer schedules, etc.
It’s not that we don’t want or need volunteers, it’s just that at this time, it’s impractical to start and manage such a program.
There are opportunities to volunteer outside the facility escorting patients through protesters, and we encourage people to reach out the great group of people who volunteer outside of the clinic – The Pink House Defenders. Anyone interested in volunteering with them should send an email expressing interest with contact information to email@example.com.
Again, we thank you all for your support, in whatever form or fashion you choose to express it!
