Monthly ‘Help Line’ volunteers needed in 317 area code at Society of St. Vincent de Paul

The Indianapolis chapter of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is looking for volunteers who are willing to assist with the “Help Line” for four hours a month in the 317 area code.

Designated help line calls that come into the center on a volunteer’s designated shift are re-routed to the volunteer’s home phone. This is done internally so the volunteer’s phone number is never disclosed.

Volunteers then answer the phone calls, listen to the caller and record all needed information that will then be forwarded on to the appropriate St. Vincent de Paul parish conference.

Volunteering with the “Help Line” can be a tremendous opportunity for those who are home bound. It can also work well for retirees, stay-at-home moms and anyone with extra time each month who wishes to spend it in a meaningful way.

Volunteers must have a phone line in the 317 area code, and must complete a short training session.

To learn more or to sign up as a volunteer, contact Sarah Newton at 317-400-7011, or sign up online by logging on to
