Put you faith into action!

Be part of Faith in Action's driving force for compassion; driving older adults to doctor's appointments and shopping in Bloomington Normal and other areas of McLean County. Scheduling is very flexible - volunteers choose when and how often they volunteer. Faith in Action (FIA) volunteers are active throughout the week. By providing rides to medical appointments, assistance with grocery shopping, or simply a friendly visit, volunteers improve quality of life for older adults who wish to remain in their own homes.

Throughout the Covid emergency, FIA volunteers continued to drive Care Receivers to medical and vaccination appointments. For everyone's safety, Care Receivers wear masks and ride in the backseat passenger side of your vehicle.
