Help a local lady learn about the modern workplace or volunteer location. Share your talents and skills with someone new!

I have a story in my head and some poetry in my heart, join me at the local library writing group. I will introduce you to my friends and my world and we can all write together. A local woman who is legally blind is in need of a buddy to get to the library for a weekly mid-day writing course. In addition a social outing or a buddy for local grocery shopping would be great too. (I love cats and have 4)

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.
