6/16/2020 10:48:00 AM Community starts with you: New volunteer training online
Do you have a day or two each month to reach out to a neighbor? A phone call, a delivery or an outside chore can mean a lot. Many of us have neighbors that we rarely see. What happens when they need help?
Neighborly Volunteers are needed to help elders, the disabled, and people in need throughout Cass County with transportation, home meal delivery, phone visits, basic home repair, and chores including ramp building, yardwork and painting, 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 and provide guidelines and safe ways you can help.
"Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in" (author unknown).
Volunteers choose how, when and how often they want to help their neighbors. Volunteers must complete an application process including the 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.
