For WBHI to carry out its mission and realize its vision, grassroots volunteer manpower is required. During each neighborhood outreach dedicated volunteer teams stress the importance of breast health, women of each household are identified, health insurance status is verified, every home where a woman resides is given an informational package containing valuable breast heath information including but not limited to breast self examination tools and appointments are made for women over the age of 40 that qualify for a free mammogram through the mobile mammography van in their neighborhood. Each door to door campaign is performed on Saturday mornings. For the 2012 Winter/Spring Outreach Campaign, volunteers meet at 8:30AM for a briefing and continental breakfast. As a group, we then go to the area to be served. The actual outreach is generally completed in approximately one hour. After the door to door campaign is completed the volunteers return back to the specified location to return the results of the outreach and enjoy a light lunch. All volunteers are asked to attend a brief volunteer training. Each volunteer is provided with and asked to wear the standard WBHI shirt. Comfortable pants and shoes are encouraged. Our dedicated volunteer teams operate in teams of three and visit approximately 30 homes per team.
