My friend had fast food for Thanksgiving, can you help me make Christmas a little brighter? It's very easy to help a neighbor who is lonely and has no family nearby. How would you help? Take them to the store when you go or try shopping with a list for them, preparing and sharing a good meal when you can, or just calling for a chat when you have time. These are easy ways to do a good deed and make a difference in the community. This opportunity is designed for someone with a lot of compassion, a good amount of energy and a smidge of free time. No need to do more than an hour or two per week to make a difference here! And, it will matter

Requirements to be a great volunteer include:

  • a desire to help others;
  • a pleasant demeanor;
  • a good reading/speaking voice;
  • average reading skills;
  • organizational or planning abilities;
  • a good driving record;
  • a clear criminal history;
  • two references
  • access to a car with proof of insurance;
  • a minimum of $50/100k liability and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
