Making a difference: Faith in Action information/new volunteer training Sept. 11

Do you have a day or two each month to reach out to a neighbor? Many of us have neighbors that we rarely see. What happens when they need help? Faith in Action is here to connect people with local resources and helpful volunteers.

Neighborly Volunteers are needed to help seniors, the disabled, and people in need throughout Cass County with transportation, home meal delivery, visiting and respite, light homemaking, basic home repair, and chores including ramp building, through Faith in Action for Cass County's coordinated volunteer services. If you would like to make a difference in your community - Faith in Action can connect you with people in need.

"Your visits and rides to get groceries have saved my life," stated Al from Pine River. "I wouldn't be able to stay here without your help."

Want to learn more? Come to an information session about Faith in Action for Cass County on Wednesday, September 11th at 9:00 AM at the Crooked Lake Town Hall, located at 6300 Woods Bay Dr NE in Outing. There will be free coffee and pastries and a short presentation with time for questions and discussion.

And if you would like to volunteer with Faith in Action, stay for the New Volunteer Training from 10:00 AM to Noon on Wednesday, September 11th at the Crooked Lake Town Hall in Outing.

Volunteers choose how, when and how often they want to help their neighbors. Volunteers must complete an application process including the 2-hr training and a background check. Volunteers receive liability insurance, service coordination, ongoing training, recognition and mileage reimbursement. With Faith in Action, there is a place for everyone's time and talents - individuals, couples and families can sign up.

Learn more about Faith in Action volunteer services or sign up for Volunteer Training on September 11th in Outing, or to schedule a volunteer training in your community by calling 218-675-5435 or email Faith in Action is "Neighbors Helping Neighbors."
