Do you like helping people? Do you want to give back to your community, but don’t know how? Do you think that you don’t have enough time to give?

If you can spare 2-3 hours a month, you can help a homebound senior stay independent and out of a nursing home by:

  • Driving them to medical appointments
  • Shopping for their groceries
  • Running errands
  • Friendly visiting
