Upcoming Volunteer Training
This month we have several volunteer training opportunities for you to choose from. We hope that one of the selections below fits into your schedule:
Tuesday, August 8th- 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Wednesday, August 16th- 10:00 a.m. - 12 Noon
Thursday, August 24th- 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Seniors throughout our community live in their own places, with their own stuff. Volunteers help to make it possible. Many of our care receivers are very sharp, but health issues make it tough to get around. Ordinary people. just like you, lead busy lives, but want to help out in the community. Faith In Action brings people from both walks of life together. Faith In Action volunteers drive, shop, or just check in on those who live alone or have long-term health care needs. If you’ve wondered how you can make a difference in the community, volunteer with Faith In Action.
Your Neighbor’s Independence Depends on You!
