My Experience With the Holidays Are DifferentDecember 21, 2014
Creation of a DreamJanuary 20, 2015
For many people, a voice on the phone at the Cleveland District Office is their first contact with A.A. They want to know what they can do about where their drinking has taken them. There are also calls from out of town visitors looking for a meeting as well as members asking about A.A. activities.
The weekends are an especially important time for the voice of Alcoholics Anonymous to be available. That’s why the Cleveland District Office offers service work to local AA groups by coming in to answer phones instead of forwarding these calls to an answering service on weekends and holidays.
Due to a recent drop in group signups, immediate help is needed. Shifts are usually set in 6 hour blocks, but there is flexibility in how the schedule is set. The suggested blocks of time are Saturday and Sunday:
- 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
- 3:00 PM – 9:00 PM
If your group would like to volunteer, please select one of the below options or call (216) 241-7387 Ext 101.
- The only requirement to be a telephone volunteer is one year of continuous sobriety and the willingness to serve.
