Ways to Get Involved
This is the main way to volunteer and is the most needed. Volunteers drive seniors to doctor appointments, the grocery store, and even to beauty appointments, using their own vehicles. Scheduling is flexible with a Monday - Friday schedule, drivers are allowed to self-assign or receive a phone call or email when a senior needs a ride. All drivers establish their own criteria of time and geographical areas where they wish to drive. Children are more than welcome to ride along.
Sometimes a senior just needs a few errands to get done, volunteers pick up prescriptions, groceries, and household items for clients.
Sometimes, the Faith in Action staff need a little help around the office. Volunteers can answer the phones, take client's requests for services, help schedule and coordinate client drives, and other services requested.
