If you are interested in volunteering for the newsletter assembly team, please call 612-781-5096. Newsletters are mailed quarterly in January, April, July and October.
COMMUNITY RESOURCE SPECIALIST
The office has some very busy days with seniors calling in to find out about services they need. Sometimes we just can't get to a phone call because we are on the other line or otherwise engaged. We would like to build a team of trained volunteers to help us provide the needed information and assistance to seniors that call. If you are available to answer phones for any 2 hour time period, Monday through Thursday, please call 612-781-5096.
WE LOVE OUR VOLUNTEERS AND SO DO THE PEOPLE THEY HELP.
