Georgetown officials ask public for help brightening residents' day

GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) - The Georgetown Police Department is looking for volunteers to assist the department with the VOICE program, according to a news release. The VOICE Program is designed to make regular telephone contacts with city and county residents that are homebound or.

The purpose of the telephone contact is to perform a welfare check and brighten the resident's day.

Currently, volunteers are making calls to residents on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. If contact with the resident is not made on two consecutive shifts, then an officer/deputy will be dispatched to make a welfare check on the resident.

If you are interested in working with the VOICE program please contact the Advocate Chanda Robinson at (843) 545-4375.
