Receptionist duties include supplying information and referrals, determining eligibility for services, and assisting with preparation and copying of documents. If you have a friendly voice and a caring personality, look for the application form on the VMC website. Go to the Volunteer Opportunities page and click on “Volunteer Receptionist.”
