SHORT-TERM WORK WITH LONG-TERM BENEFITS
For our members, the benefits of these types of services are often apparent immediately – a leaky faucet stops dripping, a picture frame is hung in their hallway or they arrive safely and on time to a physician’s visit.
Village volunteers benefit from the satisfaction of completing these tasks. But quite often they’ll also experience something even greater over time: The gift of wisdom, received from people in their community that they may not have otherwise ever met.
Please call us to talk further about our organization, services, and benefits. You will find volunteering fun and rewarding!
