Holiday Hotline looking for volunteers

by Krystal Paco

Guam - It's the season of giving and while thousands of residents are looking for the perfect gift, the Guam Behavioral and Wellness Center is looking to recruit volunteers to give the gift of time for the annual Holiday Crisis Hotline. Prevention specialist Gayle Osborn says 30 calls were received last year, ranging from those battling the blues and those who missed loved ones.

"Their job is to listen. First and foremost, put on their listening skills and just talk to people about their issues and refer them to the proper agency," she explained.

Although 21 have already signed up to volunteer a couple of hours of their time, Osborn says more are welcome but they must attend a training session scheduled for this Saturday, December 14.

To volunteer, call 477-8861 through 3.

The Holiday Hotline starts up on Christmas Eve at 6 p.m  through December 26th at 6 a.m. and again on New Years Eve at 6 p.m. through January 2nd at 6 a.m.

The number to call is 647-8833.
