The Faith in Action Office is open and needs volunteers to assist in various office duties. Proper social distancing is practiced as well as the cleaning of common surfaces before and after a volunteer shift. The office is located on the 2nd floor of the Activity and Recreation Center and is currently the only office open on this level of the building.
This is a perfect volunteer opportunity for someone who enjoys working in an office setting. Transportation Desk volunteers answer phones, schedule rides for our care receivers, make phone-calls, and help with various tasks around the office. Scheduling is very flexible. You may choose between a morning shift Monday-Friday (9 AM - 12:30 PM), or an afternoon shift Monday-Thursday (12:30 PM - 4 PM).
We'll make sure you feel comfortable and well-prepared by providing training as well as time to shadow a more experienced Transportation Desk volunteer!
Please contact our office at (309) 827-7780 if you are interested in this volunteer opportunity!

FIA provides spiritual, physical, and emotional support to seniors 60 years and over and their caregivers to maintain independence, dignity, and improved quality of life. We accomplish this through an interfaith network of volunteers, congregations and community organizations.
