Ostomy Support Group of Northern Virginia, LLC.

A 501(c)(3) Organization
Volunteers and OSGNV

Have you ever wondered how the Ostomy Support Group of Northern Virginia (OSGNV) is able to coordinate, manage and execute all the activities so many of us have come to enjoy and depend on? From the website to the newsletter to monthly support meetings along with special educational activities and links to the UOAA national events, all these activities are organized and executed by volunteers from our many local ostomates and caregivers.

As much as we do, as much as we offer, our collective success relies on volunteers like YOU! Here are specific needs right now to provide for new and long-time ostomates in our community.

Newsletter Editor: The editor selects material, assembles, and creates a quarterly newsletter highlighting local information such as support group meeting topics and local ostomy clinics. The format and frequency of the newsletter will depend on what the volunteer chooses to do.

If interested, please contact us at info@osgnv.org.

Marketing Coordinator: OSGNV hopes to introduce our services to new ostomates and long-term ostomates who have moved to Northern Virginia via a brochure. The marketing coordinator will manage ways to distribute these brochures to local medical professionals. OSGNV also gains by advertising information on our website about ostomy product suppliers and distributors. The marketing coordinator will manage some or all of these outreach activities.

If interested, please contact us at info@osgnv.org.

Mailing Team: Volunteers are needed for the team to stuff and label envelopes four times a year to send the newsletter to members who receive a paper copy. They will meet for an hour at a library education room or a coffee shop for this activity as needed.

If interested, please contact us at info@osgnv.org.

OSGNV is a non-profit organization that receives no supplemental or government funds to assist us in reaching out to all varieties of ostomates including maintaining a website, telephone, email, postal address, and holding virtual meetings. We judiciously apply the OSGNV membership dues to offer many support activities throughout the year.

Our OSGNV Board of Directors thank you for your dedication and volunteer participation in making our organization the very best it can be. And please remember, without YOU there would be no US!
